In this book the author analyses recent experience in participatory approaches to forest resource assessment, from mapping to complex inventories of many species. Chapters in the book provide detailed case studies from Nigeria, Ecuador, Mexico, Ghana, Nepal, Indonesia, and Uganda and are supplemented by discussion chapters. The introduction sets the need for participatory forest resource assessment in the context of general developments in forestry, while the concluding chapters draw lessons from the case study material and from other documented field experience.
