Reviews

“This book is based on the research, lectures and real-life experiences of authors who all originate from Finland. …  This book presents the advances and progress in the use of OR in forestry management over the last forty to fifty years. The substantial growth in the range of techniques, methods and approaches extensively shown through examples in the book Decision Support for Forest Management, should put forest managers and decision makers well equipped to face this challenge.” (Hans W. Ittmann, IFORS News, Vol. 11 (1), March, 2017)
