Management of Natural Resources – Notes
Management of Forest Resources
Forest resources include the land, trees and different life forms including bacteria, fungi, ferns, flowering plants, nematodes, insects, birds, reptiles and large animals.
Forests are biodiversity hotspots – together, all the species of plants and animals help maintain the ecological stability of the forests.
We depend on the resources offered by our forests in many ways.
Preserving our forests and not using resources indiscriminately is critical in order to avoid disturbing the delicate ecological balance, depleting limited resources and polluting the environment.
Sustainable development and management of resources involves using available resources in a manner that also preserves these resources for future generations.
