Conventional ways of forest degradation studies fail to distinctly understand the social and economic factors that contribute to deforestation and degradation which are fundamentals for future interventions of management. As a result, household dependence on a majorly privately use right owned coffee forest of Zege Peninsula of the Amhara Region of Ethiopia was conducted to understand the type and nature of interaction of the inhabitants with the forest.

This book is about the people perception on forest fire dynamics along the temporal and spatial change with altitudinal gradient. Garhwal Himalaya’s Alaknanda valley is renowned for its natural beauty. But in recent decades it is noticed that forest fire incidences has been increased vigorously in the valley. However, to the best of my knowledge, there were no studies carried out to know the perception of local people or other stakeholder about forest fire.
