Temperate Native Forests in Chile: Management, Conservation and Forest Practices
Fred Duncan - 2006
This report discusses management, conservation and forest practices in Chile’s temperate forests, and relates these to the situation in Tasmania's forests.
Temperate forests in both places share a flora of Gondwanan origin and have many ecological attributes in common.
There are also similar threads in their management and conservation, both of which have attracted a great deal of attention. Native forests are used for production of wood and other products, and are also important for the protection of soil and water values and biodiversity.
