Global Forest Fragmentation Edited by Chris Kettle and Lian Pin Koh (Associate Professor, University of Adelaide, Australia),  provides a cutting edge review of the multi-disciplinary sciences related to studies of global forest fragmentation. It specifically addresses cross-cutting themes from both an ecological and a social sciences perspective. The ultimate goal of Global Forest Fragmentation is to provide a detailed scientific base to support future forest landscape management and planning to meet global environmental and societal needs.

Available as an eBook, or from the publishers.
