Forest Values. Natural resources and humans are inextricably linked in the South. These linkages will only strengthen as increased urbanization, globalization, and shifting values influence and alter how people interact with forests. Forest Values, Uses, and Policies will provide the knowledge and tools required to manage impacts and optimize benefits of human-forest interactions.
