Special Issue "Sustainability in Wood Science"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2018) | Viewed by 10374
Wood, in all its forms, will have an unquestionable impact on the sustainability of future society. Around 1.6 billion people are stressed by the United Nations to depend on forests for their livelihood. These forests provide opportunities to create different goods and services that address many challenges in sustainable development. Wood science will play a great role in how these challenges are tackled and how wood is used in the future. This Special Issue on sustainability in wood science will include papers related to environmental, social and economic dimensions of wood and wood products. The papers discuss topics from different areas of the forest industrial system or on an overall system perspective, from forest to different transformation activities. Aspects on how wood is returned to nature after it use are also issues of interest. Wood as the ultimate renewable material is a competitive material due to its different biological, chemical, physical and mechanical properties. Wood, with all its beauty, smell, texture and tangibility, however, also creates feelings. Therefore, the belief is that the papers have a multi-disciplinary approach and examine, explore and critically engage with issues and advances in all wood sustainability areas.
