    This review of the disturbance ecology literature, and how it pertains to forest management, is a resource for forest managers and researchers interested in disturbance theory, specific disturbance agents, their interactions, and appropriate methods of inquiry for specific geographic regions. Implications for the future of disturbance ecology-based management are discussed. Forest ecosystems are shaped by disturbances and functional features of vegetation recovery after disturbances. There is considerable variation in basic disturbance characteristics, magnitude, severity, and intensity. Disturbance legacies provide possible explanations for ecosystem resilience.

    disturbances and how they influence site potential, productivity, and sustainability. •2. Describe the role of disturbance in ecosystem structure and function. •3. Discuss disturbance theories and concepts. •4. Describe disturbance regimes that influence Utah and Great Basin ecosystems. Ecology of a Managed Terrestrial Landscape is the first book to describe the landscape ecology of a continuously forested landscape in a comprehensive manner. It is written for instructors and students in forest management, wildlife ecology, and landscape ecology, and for forest managers, planners, and policy developers in North America.

Managers of other reserves should read the book as guidance on the level of understanding to which they should aspire in managing their own sites. Resource-starved management staff from the government agencies may simply read it and weep!".

Natural disturbance regimes are considered to be a type of “gold standard” against which to compare harvesting, since it is widely presumed that the natural regime was able to maintain productivity and biodiversity of forests Natural Disturbances and Forest Management: Interacting Patterns on the Landscape.

In the managed forest, management dictates the disturbance regime (frequency, size and intensity) which must be fitted to the attributes, or life histories, of the organisms to be managed.

An extensive literature supports the hypothesis that natural disturbance is fundamental to the development of structure and function of forest ecosystems. It follows that our management of natural forest should be based on an ecological understanding of the processes of natural disturbance.

Forest Ecology and Management publishes scientific articles linking forest ecology with forest management, focusing on the application of biological, ecological and social knowledge to the management and conservation of plantations and natural forests.

This book is a stimulating addition to the international literature on landscape ecology and land resource management at large.
