Top customer reviews
The only addition that I would have liked to see is a more structured and formal approach to reviewing the contemporary and future areas in which forest modeling can play a role --- carbon sequestration and climate change, for example. Not that these topics are ignored, but it would have been good to see a sustained analysis of the contributions that FGYM can make to these modern challenges.
This book is certainly a worthy successor to Vanclay's valuable first edition.
