Koo Lee, D. (ed.)
This scientific publication project, led by Professor Don Koo LEE, Minister of the Korea Forest Service and Professor at the Seoul National University (SNU), has spanned over a period of several years, starting in early 2006. It has brought together around 100 forest scientists from the various regions in Asia Pacific, who jointly produced state-of-the-art assessments addressing major issues such as the status of forests in Asia Pacific, causes of forest degradation, and past and current rehabilitation efforts and achievements. But the book series also critically analyses national capacities in forest rehabilitation, existing research and education programmes on forest rehabilitation, and past and future initiatives to strengthen rehabilitation efforts.
