The New Brunswick forest case study shows how attempting to maximize forest timber production on the basis of individual stands might not only fail to maximize yield over the whole forest, but fail to provide consistency in yields over a long period.
Harvesting a population for maximal yield can increase the variability of the yield and the likelihood of overharvesting (Chapter 11.
Increasing production of an agricultural crop or forest often involves the use of hazardous pesticides (Chapter 24), which can have several deleterious cumulative side effects (Chap- ters 1, 3, and 41.
