There is much more you can do with wood than cook and build.
There is much more you can do with wood than cook and build. So-called non-timber forest products (NTFPs) are attracting interest, at the cusp of environmental conservation and income-generation (see Spore 89). NTFP harvesting does not necessarily contradict forest conservation. Tapping the Green Market aims at keeping the two in balance. It provides profiles of major NTFPs throughout the world and pays attention to the ongoing search for sustainable ways of managing forests, including the certification of NTFPs. It warns, rightfully so, against optimism about certification - this requires a wealthy and environmentally conscious group of consumers and that rules out many of the world's NFTPs. An interesting new tome in the People and Plants conservation series. Tapping the Green Market Certification and Management of Non-Timber Forest Products Edited by A Guillen, S A Laird, P Shanley & A R Pierce.
