The first modern history of Scottish woodlands, this highly illustrated volume explores the changing relationship between trees and people from the time of Scotland's first settlement, focusing on the period 1500 to 1920. Drawing on work in natural science, geography and history, as well as on the authors' own research, it presents an accessible and readable account that balances social, economic and environmental factors. Two opening chapters describe the early history of the woodlands. The book is then divided into chapters that consider traditional uses and management, the impact of outsiders on the pine woods and the oakwoods in the first phase of exploitation, and the effect of industrialization. Separate chapters are devoted to case studies of management at Strathcarron, Glenorchy, Rothiemurchus, and on Skye.
This book presents up-to-date information about Scotland's native woodlands. It draws upon professional experience of scientific research, survey and management, where the author has studied many important native woodlands in Scotland and beyond.

Ist Nachhaltigkeit überhaupt noch notwendig? Diese provokante Frage diskutierten Experten Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts auf internationalen Kongressen. Da das entstehende Eisenbahnnetz den Holztransport revolutionierte, schienen alte Nachhaltigkeitsideen nicht mehr zeitgemäß. Kritische Stimmen entgegneten, dass durch anhaltendes Wirtschaftswachstum auch nachwachsende Rohstoffe bald erschöpft sein würden. Christian Lotz analysiert in diesem Buch erstmals die Wechselwirkungen zwischen technologischem Wandel, der Erschließung neuer Räume (timber frontier) und dem Nachdenken über neue Konzepte zur Nutzung und Schonung von Ressourcen. Auf diese Weise befördert es auch eine kritische Auseinandersetzung mit aktuellen Diskussionen um Nachhaltigkeit.
