Because of large-scale clearing and conversion to agriculture, pasture, and u r b a n areas, temperate deciduous forests do not usually occur in extensive tracts. Except for stands of Populus, it is also unusual to find pure stands of one species. The forests are being further altered by exchange of species, extirpation of species, and pathogen outbreaks. Collectively, all these factors have greatly altered the nature of temperate deciduous forests, especially in Europe. M a n a g e m e n t may range from periodic selective tree removal to the most intensive form of forest m a n a g e m e n t - short-rotation plantations for fiber or fuel production.

0 aData derived from a table by Melillo et al. (1993). it is i n t e n d e d to provide a framework for thinking a b o u t the processes dealt with in the o t h e r chapters, and their implications for forest ecology and m a n a g e m e n t , r a t h e r than detail a b o u t the forest types considered. For such detail, reference must be m a d e to books and papers dealing exclusively with particular forest biomes. A. Boreal forests Boreal forests cover a b o u t 12 • 10 s ha and occur exclusively in the n o r t h e r n h e m i s p h e r e .

Myers (1996) provides data to show that farmers are responsible for a b o u t half the forest felling in T h i r d World countries, whereas the l u m b e r industry accounts for a b o u t oneq u a r t e r of forest d e s t r u c t i o n or degradation. H a l t i n g these processes is therefore largely a s o c i o e c o n o m i c p r o b l e m r a t h e r t h a n a technical one.
