Cork Oak Woodlands on the Edge. Ecology, Adaptive Management and Restoration. 2009. (The Science and Practice of Ecological Restoration Series). col. photogr., maps. figs. XVII, 315 p. gr8vo. Hardcover.

Cork oak has historically been an important species in the western Mediterranean-ecologically as a canopy or "framework" tree in natural woodlands, and culturally as an economically valuable resource that underpins local economies. Both the natural woodlands and the derived cultural systems are experiencing rapid change, and whether or not they are resilient enough to adapt to that change is an open question. The book considers ecological, genetic, economic, and historical perspectives surrounding cork oak trees, cork oak woodlands, and cork-based products and presents scientific information regarding restoration and management. It offers a suite of techniques for the practice of restoring cork oak woodlands, presents cost-benefit analyses of cork oak woodlands and the manufacture and trade of cork products and looks at challenges for the future, including ecoregional planning options, threats posed by climate and land-use changes, and modeling techniques that can help guide decision making.
