Research article The Evaluation of Criteria for Protection Forestry
The term protection forest is defined. Benefits which accrue from forests are divided between those concerning the soil and those concerning water. Methods of evaluating benefits are discussed with emphasis on those thought to be of particular significance in New Zealand. These are the effect of forest on flooding, and the effect on soil erosion. Some examples are given. There is also some discussion on the concept of multiple-use forests. (no keywords)
