O knihe

Biological diversity can be sustained in the
fragmented forest environments in two ways: by
preserving small-scale forest habitats and by
applying ecological forest management practices. In
Finland, where 63% of forestland area is
privately owned, private landowners' willingness to
carry out these actions is of the utmost importance.
We may ask "How landowners' perceptions of
environmental values
alter their land management objectives and inspire
them to improve environmental quality?" and "What
implication may this have on designing cost-
effective policy instruments and extension services
to activate and direct non-industrial private
forest management?" The results show that
landowners' annual willingness to pay (WTP) for
environmental quality varies between 0.0-0.8% of
their total annual income and between 0.4-16.0% of
their annual timber sales income. Acceptability of
alternative policy measures (other than direct
compensation) was limited. Landowners' preference
grouping and forest holdings' EQindex were found as
promising techniques for policy makers and forest
managers in improving client oriented and
sustainable forest management planning.
