Summary:The Management of Industrial Forest Plantations. Theoretical Foundations and Applications answers calls from both the research and the professional communities for a synthesis of current knowledge about industrial forestry management planning processes. The emphasis of the book is thus on covering  components of the forest supply chain ranging from modelling techniques to management planning approaches and information and communication technology support.  We think that this synthesis by 39 leading experts in this field may provide effective support to education, research and outreach activities that focus on forest management and specifically on industrial plantations management. It may contribute further to support forest managers when developing industrial plantations management plans. Moreover, the structure of the book as well the standardized design of individual chapters - that address a wide range of topics relevant to industrial plantations management scheduling - targets the support of both undergraduate and graduate forest management classes. For that purpose, the introduction to each chapter includes a What you will learn in this chapter section to highlight and convey the main objectives of the chapter and thus help structure the reading by learners and trainees. All chapters include also a section with exercises, problems and review questions to further support the structuring of the knowledge acquired by students. The presentation of concepts, models, methods and management planning approaches is complemented by the discussion of applications in 26 Management Planning in Actions boxes distributed all over the book. These applications highlight the linkage between theory and practice and the contribution of models, methods and management planning approaches to the efficiency and the effectiveness of industrial plantations management planning
