Caused in part by the slash-and-burn practices of both large- and small-scale farmers, the environmental implications of tropical deforestation remain a worldwide concern. Yet the small-scale farmers who use slash-and-burn agriculture depend on it to produce food and make a living for their families. With contributions from scientists, economists, ecologists, and anthropologists, this book provides an overall analysis of the environmental, economic, and social reasons for why slash and burn is so common and presents alternatives to this destructive practice.

Guidelines for Surveying Soil and Land Resources promotes the development and implementation of consistent methods and standards for conducting soil and land resource surveys in Australia. These surveys are primarily field operations that aim to identify, describe, map and evaluate the various kinds of soil or land resources in specific areas. The advent of geographic information systems, global positioning systems, airborne gamma radiometric remote sensing, digital terrain analysis, simulation modelling, efficient statistical analysis and internet-based delivery of information has dramatically changed the scene in the past two decades. As successor to the Australian Soil and Land Survey Handbook: Guidelines for Conducting Surveys, this authoritative guide incorporates these new methods and techniques for supporting natural resource management. Soil and land resource surveyors, engineering and environmental consultants, commissioners of surveys and funding agencies will benefit from the practical information provided on how best to use the new technologies that have been developed, as will professionals in the spatial sciences such as geomorphology, ecology and hydrology.

"The NVC Users' Handbook provides a detailed description of the NVC methods for collection of vegetation relevés (quadrat) data, the methodology for sampling vegetation in the field, and the analysis and description of NVC data. It provides an authoritative introduction to the National Vegetation Classification (NVC), as published in the five volumes of British Plant Communities. It also explains how such information can be used to identify plant communities and discusses important issues involved in carrying out an NVC survey of a site. There is a brief account of some of the applications and limitations of the NVC. Accompanying the Handbook are two spreadsheets. 1. 'NVC Name Codes': this spreadsheet contains the codes and names of all the NVC communities and sub-communities. It includes information on species used to define particular communities and sub-communities that have changed their scientific name/status since the publication of the original NVC volumes. 2. NVC floristic tables: this spreadsheet provides information on the floristic tables used to define the NVC vegetation types, as explained in the Handbook."--JNCC website
