Lester Russel Brown, famous author of more than 50 books on the environment and founder of the Worldwatch Institute in the United States, urges us to become more aware of the many services forests offer the world. Although the usefulness of the world’s products is recognized, its other roles are often only measured after it has disappeared. According to Brown, the protection of forests—climate regulation, flood control, soil preservation, water quality improvement, storing and recycling of nutrients, sources of biodiversity—plays an essential role, both for the environment and for the economy.
