Dr Schlich's Manual of Forestry

    Article metrics


    THIS volume is the second edition of Prof. Fisher's Forest Protection, and is uniform with the third edition of vols. i., ii., and iii. of Dr. Schlich's Manual of Forestry. The book is an English adaptation of Dr. Hess's Forstschutz, that is, it is not a mere translation, as the author has exercised discretion in his selection of material in order to make the book more adapted to the use of Briflsh and Indian foresters. New illustrations have also been added which are not in the German edition. The subject of forest protection is of immense importance, and covers a wide field of knowledge, practically including every branch of scientific sylviculture. The author has arranged and presented the various protective measures to be adopted against inimical agencies, both in the organic and inorganic worlds, in a very clear and interesting manner. The volume also contains a useful index at the end. Prof. Fisher has done valuable work by rendering available to student and forester a vast store of information which has hitherto been accessible only to a few. The book is one which we can warmly recommend to all those who have forests or trees under their charge.
