Contents Foreword; D. Suzuki -- Preface; D.A. DellaSala -- 1. Just What Are Temperate and Boreal Rainforests?; D.A. DellaSala et al -- 2. Temperate and Boreal Rainforests of the Pacific Coast of North America; D.A. DellaSala et al -- 3. Temperate and Boreal Rainforests of Inland Northwestern North America; D.A. DellaSala et al -- 4. Perhumid Boreal and Hemiboreal Forests of Eastern Canada; S.R. Clayden et al -- 5. ValdivianTemperate Rainforests of Chile and Argentina; D. Tecklin et al -- 6.

DellaSala -- 9. Rainforests at the Margins:Regional Profiles; D.A. DellaSala. Regional Profile: Colchic and HyrcanicTemperate Rainforests of the Western Eurasian Caucasus; G. Nakhutsrishvili et al. Regional Profile: Humidity-Dependent Forests of the Russian Far East, Inland Southern Siberia, and the Eastern Korean Peninsula; P.V. Krestov et al. Regional Profile: Knysna-TsitsikammaTemperate Rainforests of South Africa; P.E. Hosten, J.M. Rossa -- 10. Crosscutting Issues and Conservation Strategies; D. A. DellaSala et al -- 11. A Global Strategy for Rainforests in the Era of Climate Change; J. Fitzgerald et al -- Contributors -- Index.
Note While tropical rainforests have received much conservation attention and support for their protection, temperate and boreal rainforests have been largely overlooked. Yet these ecosystems are also unique, supporting rainforest communities rich in plants and wildlife and containing some of the most massive trees on Earth. Temperate and Boreal Rainforests of the World brings together leading scientists from around the world to describe the ecology and conservation of these lesser-known rainforests in an attempt to place them on par with tropical rainforests in conservation efforts. The book summarizes major scientific findings presents new computer models that were used to standardize rainforest definitions identifies regions previously not widely recognized as rainforest provides the latest estimates on rainforest extent and degree of protection explores conservation strategies The book ends with a summary of the key ecological findings and outlines an ambitious vision of how we can conserve and manage the planet's remaining temperate and boreal rainforests in a truly ecological way that is better for nature, the climate, and ultimately our own welfare. Temperate and Boreal Rainforests of the World is a call to action for an accord to protect the world's rainforests. It offers a global vision rooted in ecological science but written in common language useful for governments, decision makers, and conservation groups concerned about the plight of these remarkable forests.
