Innovation in Forestry

Innovation is increasingly recognised as a key factor in environmental protection and balanced sustainable development within the forestry sector. This volume provides a comprehensive theoretical foundation for the analysis of innovation processes and policies in a traditional, rural sector as well as presenting empirical analyses of innovation processes from major innovation areas. Territorial services of the forest sector are examined, including various types of forest ecosystem services such as carbon sequestration or recreation and wood value chains, including timber frame construction and bioenergy.


Researchers and policymakers in forestry and environmental sciences.
