About the Book :

This multi-volume series is to contribute and provide scientific knowledge on natural resources in developing countries for their rational and sustainable development. It creates an understanding of the critical and decisive role that resource development and management play in today's society by an intelligent garnering of natural resources, restocking of forests and the achievement of a long-term rotational agro-forestry, arresting of soil erosion and depletion, prudent management of range and preservation of fish reserves and mammals. This volume provides the practitioner access to the most practical and recent thinking on the subject of natural resource management including models, theories and paradigms. This will therefore be an essential reading for those concerned with the resource management process as it operates both in developed and developing countries. It elaborates the concepts of renewable! and non-renewable resources, ecological, economic, behavioural and integrated approaches and emphasizes an approach to sustainable development of resources. It also demonstrates the use of Geographic Information Systems and Remote Sensing Techniques in inventory and appraisal of natural resources, to improve the quality of decision-making as well as in monitoring and evaluation of public policy.
