DescriptionThe future of forests around the world is uncertain: forests are being cleared and the lands converted to other uses, while existing forests face many challenges from a variety of sources. The pressures on forests come from two usually opposing perspectives, timber production and wildlife conservation. This special issue volume attempts to bridge between these two disciplines and attempts to move towards an integrated approach for developing a forest conservation strategy. This volume is based on papers presented to two separate technical sessions of the XXII IUFRO World Congress, which was held in Brisbane, Australia on August 8–13, 2005 (IUFRO News, 2005). The themes of these technical sessions covered both the silviculture and management of rare, threatened and endangered tree species, and the management of forest landscape mosaics for production and conservation.
