Restoration of Boreal and Temperate Forests (2004), edited by Stanturf and Madsen, summarizes the breadth of restoration protocols at both the local and regional scale and documents and compares over 20 case studies of forest restoration projects in a geographically diverse range of temperate and boreal zones.

Climate Disturbance Interactions in Boreal Forest Ecosystems (2004), International Boreal Forest Research Association, proceedings that increase the understanding of the role of the circumpolar boreal forest in the global environment and the effects of environmental change upon that role.

Disturbance Dynamics in Boreal Forests: Defining the Ecological Basis of Restoration and Management of Biodiversity (2002), edited by Korpilahti and Kuuluvainen, is a collection of papers on forest disturbance and successional processes, population dynamics of forest-dwelling species, and the interaction between these two.

Ecosystem Management in Boreal Forest Landscapes (2001), edited by Vuori and Kouki, conference proceedings that aims at bringing together scientists and forest managers that work for developing novel ways to manage boreal forests in a sustainable way.

Illegal Forest Felling Activities in Russia (2001), by Morozov, argues that is not possible to solve the problem of illegal forest felling operations until both buyers and sellers of forest products close the illegally logged timber from entering the market.

Global Forest Restoration: A Review (1999), Conservation Biology Institute, presents an analysis of the concept of forest restoration, as well as individual reviews of the various ecological, technical, and socio-political factors relevant to the WWF Global 200 major habitat types.
