Introduction

Introduction

The present book Forests under Pressure: Local Responses to Global Issues is the third volume produced by the International Union of Forest Research Organizations’ Special Project World Forests, Society, and Environment (IUFRO-WFSE). The two previous volumes are: Forests and Society – Responding to Global Drivers of Change (Mery et al. 2010) and Forests in Global Balance: Changing Paradigms (Mery et al. 2005).
This volume is divided into four parts. Within each part there are a number of chapters. Part I introduces the overall structure of this volume and provides an introduction to Part II, which consists of local- and regional-level case studies. Part III presents a synthesis of the case studies, drawing on their findings and important processes within individual cases. Part IV is forward-looking and discusses several of the issues and findings from Parts II and III in the context of future outlooks and scenarios.
