This is a concise and accurate diagnostic guide to practically all the diseases and disorders that affect both forest and amenity trees in Europe, including many that occur in other continents. The book is organized pragmatically, according to the part of the tree affected - separate chapters deal with other disorders such as leaf diseases, bark damage, and damage to woody tissues. Important trees are covered throughout northern Europe, as well as those scheduled for quarantine from outside Europe.

Effective management of tree health problems depends on early detection and recognition of symptoms. This guide includes 140 photographs of symptoms from more than 50 tree species, which can be used as a basis for demonstrating the effects of pest (biotic) and non-living (abiotic) influences on trees. It is not designed as an identification guide to insect pests and diseases of trees, but rather seeks to enable a preliminary diagnosis and assessment of potential problems, in order to promote better planning and more effective management of forests and trees.

For the first time, a synthesis on the research work done in Europe on all Bark And Wood Boring Insects In Living Trees (BAWBILT) is presented. As final product of a four-year research project gathering together 100 scientists from 24 countries, the book is the fruit of a real collective synthesis in which all European specialists have participated. It reviews and comments on all the European literature, while considering the biological (trees, insects, associated organisms, and their relationships) and forest management aspects. However, although focused on the European forest, it also compares the available information and interpretations to those concerning similar species in other continents. It ends with propositions of research priorities for Europe. The book is directed to all scientists and students concerned with forest entomology and ecology, as well as to forest managers and all scientific public interested in forest biology.

Forests in Sustainable Mountain Development

Written by leading international authors, this book presents a comprehensive review of forests in mountain regions, and their sustainable development. Based on a report prepared by the IUFRO Task Force in Sustainable Mountain Development, for the IUFRO Congress to be held in August 2000. The book addresses current issues and initiatives, and defines research needs. Key global issues and addressed is in general articles, while specific regional topics are described and highlighted within each chapter in shorter case studies. Case studies are drawn from all continents, examples including Mexico, Central Europe, Cameroon, Tanzania, Chile, Korea, New Zealand and many others. Contributions have been included from nearly 100 world experts, making this volume the definitive, state-of the art review of its subject.

The Impacts of Climate Variability on Forests

This volume contains a selection of scientific papers which were presented at an international workshop on the impacts of climatic variability held in Wengen, Switzerland, September 1997. For the first time, an assessment is made of the interactions between physical and biological elements of the Earth System on the basis of shifts in extreme climatic conditions, rather than simply changes in mean atmospheric conditions which research has tended to focus on until recently. Natural ecosystems and forests are typical examples of systems which, while constrained within certain ranges of mean climate, can undergo rapid and often irreversible damage in the face of short-lived but intense extreme events.
