French Forests and Forestry: Tunisia, Algeria, Corsica

Nature volume 101, page 182 (09 May 1918) | Download Citation



THIS book is provided with a somewhat misleading title, so that the reader expects a description of forests and forestry practice in France; whereas the three dependencies of Corsica, Algeria, and Tunisia are dealt with. The author, who was formerly a forest officer in the United States, visited these three countries and studied them as an expert. His detailed description of the distribution, management, administrat tion, and protection of the forests may be regarded as authoritative. His remarks on sylvicultural methods are of great interest, especially to foresters in the United States and in our own Colonies, where the climatic conditions are often similar to those in the countries here described.
