Forest Resources And Their Utilisation In India
This book deals with the importance of forests and forest resources (major and minor) which inevitably play a significant role, actual and potential, in the economic development of India in general and Assam in particular. They not only serve as the much needed fillip to environmental progress but also provides the three basic human needs viz. food, clothing and shelter. The present work is a sincere attempt at documenting and analysing the productive, protective and aesthetic functions of forests and forest resources. They account for a sizeable share of agricultural and industrial output, income, export trade, employment etc. of the State of Assam, despite deforestation and wanton destruction of this green gold at an alarming rate. The utilization, exploitation and extraction of the forest wealth and the development programmes undertaken by the Govt. and other institutions during the various plans and implementation of forest policies have been studied analytically and critically in this comprehensive book. Certain remedial measures for scientific preservation and development of forest an its valuable resources have also been suggested in the book.
