Sustainable forestry is discussed as an alternative to clearcutting and monoculture plantation forestry. With the availability of inexpensive fertilizers and larger farm equipment after World War II, and the availability of cheap water for irrigation in some parts of the western United States, many people working with soils forgot or ignored the importance of organic matter in promoting high-quality soils. The committee concludes that federal research and commodity programs must be restructured.

    The author concludes that soil quality was degrading; fertilizer input was high; pesticide application was high; large farms tended to be less inefficient than the small ones; and that agriculture as practiced in the research area can be considered deficient with respect to sustainability. Floyd's book, Forest Sustainabilitydetails how the concept of forest sustainability has evolved over time. Piper's book, Farming in Nature's Imagepresents the case for bringing the disciplines of ecology and agriculture together so that a less wasteful way to farm can be developed. Power's book, Soil Fertility Management for Sustainable Agricultureexamines soil fertility issues in both temperate and tropical regions as they believe soil fertility is central to the development of sustainable food production systems. The essay begins by discussing books that comprehensively discuss sustainable agriculture and sustainable forestry. Sustaining the Forest, The People, and the Spirit.

    The Center creates publications that focus on specific topics of current interest. Cooke's book, The Challenge of Sustainable Forestsstudies the politics behind the efforts to conserve Malaysia's forest resources and the reasons why this become such a "runaway issue. More collective forms of land management need to be encouraged.
