Landscape-level management, driven by conservation objectives, will undoubtedly continue to play a role in natural resource decisionmaking for the foreseeable future. A fundamental justification for landscape management is that reliance on designated protected areas and reserves alone is inadequate for the maintenance of forest biological diversity. According to the authors, management practices on unreserved, commodity-producing lands (referred to throughout this book as “the matrix”) will determine the success or failure of efforts to maintain forest biological conservation and forest health. This book makes the case for management at several scales to achieve these objectives within large, contiguous forest systems.
