While boreal and temperate forests generally have lower species richness than tropical forests, they support significant numbers of species, many of which are endemic (Wells et al. ), all of which have unique life histories, and many of which serve vital ecological functions (Bradshaw et al. , Robertson et al. , Wells & Blancher , Badiou et al. , Wells et al. ). The book also considers forests as parts of the land and as features of the landscape. It points out relationships of forests to rainfall and temperature, relief and soils, and it discusses the effects upon the forests of human populations, institutions, needs, and desires.
Clawson is concerned here not so much with what forest policy should be, but more with the criteria by which it should be determined.

Forest cover has been directly linked to drinking water treatment costs, so the more forest in a source water watershed, the lower the cost to treat that water.
Forests provide these benefits by filtering sediments and other pollutants from the water in the soil before it reaches a water source, such as a stream, lake or river.
