Title: Forest Transition And Ecological Modernization: Eucalyptus Forestry Beyond Good And Bad
Author: Farinaci J.S.

Abstract: In this paper, we use the case of eucalyptus monoculture to explore some analytical contributions of ecological modernization to the discussion on forest transition. We address the issues of including tree monocultures in transition calculations, and the indirect influence that these monocultures can play on native forest recovery. We analyze general aspects of the topic, as well as a case study in São Luiz do Paraitinga, in São Paulo. We argue that monoculture tree plantations should not be included in transition calculations, but neither should they be ignored in discussions about conservation and forest recovery. The case study shows the role played by pressure from society, not only by means of decisions as consumers, but mainly through political activity for developing legal instruments.
