Abstract: "This article addresses one of the most controversial issues related to resource management: how and to what extent do population pressures affect resource use? The article begins by examining the often conflicting literature on the topic and then considers a regression analysis of actual data to determine the relative impact of three variables - population, market forces and institutional arrangements on forest conditions."
