Our forest, your ecosystem, their timber : communities, conservation, and the state in community-based forest management by Nicholas K Menzies( Book )

9 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this volume, Nicholas K. Menzies looks at communities in China, Zanzibar, Brazil, and India where, despite differences in landscape, climate, politics, and culture, common challenges and themes arise in making a transition from forest management by government agencies to community-based forest management (CBFM). The stories of these four distinct places highlight the difficulties communities face when trying to manage their forests and negotiate partnerships with others interested in forest management, such as the commercial forest sector or conservation and environmental organizations. These issues are then considered against a growing body of research concerning what constitutes successful CBFM." "Drawing on published and unpublished case studies, project reports, and his own rich experience, Menzies analyzes how CBFM fits into the broader picture of the management of natural resources, highlighting the conditions that bring about effective practices and the most just and equitable stewardship of resources."--Jacket
Forest and land management in Imperial China by Nicholas K Menzies( Book )

This book describes six examples of managed forests varying from the Imperial Hunting Enclosure in north-eastern China to intensively cultivated small-scale systems where timber was grown as a commercial product intercropped with other cash crops. The author shows that individuals and communities acted to manage resources for a number of reasons including economic benefit, and religious or symbolic purposes. Users adopted different management strategies to suit their own organisational capacities and changing social and economic conditions

Trees, fields, and people : the forests of China from the seventeenth to the nineteenth centuries by Nicholas K Menzies( Book )

9 editions published between 1988 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The historical pattern of land use in China has been described as a process of clearance of forest for conversion to agriculture. There is evidence that in spite of the general phenomenon of deforestation, forests were protected, maintained, or intensively managed in many places, often for periods of several centuries. This dissertation identifies and describes six of these forms of management, varying from the Imperial Hunting Enclosure in northeastern China to intensively cultivated small scale systems where timber was grown as a commercial product intercropped with annual and perennial cash crops
