This new edition to the People and Plants Conservation Series looks at the rapidly growing interest in, and demand for non-timber forest products. They provide critical resources across the globe, fulfilling nutritional, medicinal, financial and cultural needs.
Tapping the Green Market explains the use and importance of certification and eco-labelling for guaranteeing best management practices of non-timber forest products in the field.
Using extensive case studies and global profiles of non-timber forest products, this volume not only furthers our comprehension of certification processes but also broadens our understanding of non-timber forest product management, harvesting and marketing.
This comprehensive resource will be invaluable for forest managers, policy-makers and conservation organizations as well as for academics in these areas.
