Restoring Degraded Landscapes with Native Species in Latin America

In Restoring Degraded Landscapes with Native Species in Latin America, co-editors Florencia Montagnini, professor in the practice of tropical forestry, and Christopher Finney argue that sustainable forestry, including plantations of native tree species, mixed-species plantations, agroforestry and enrichment plantings, can provide a wide range of ecosystem services, such as erosion control, reduction of invasive species, watershed protection, habitat connectivity, biodiversity and carbon sequestration, as well as economic benefits from timber, fuel wood, fruit, fodder, honey and other products. The book is published by Nova Science Publishers.
