Abstract:  The ecological studies which Prof. J. F. Franklin and his.colleagues were engaged in at Andrews Experimental Forest located in Oregon, USA, and the new forestry theory proposed by them are reviewed.The theory focuses on: 1) Integration of the ecological functons of a forest (including species preservation and environment protection) with wood production, in order to coordinate forestry development. 2) Traditional forestry only concerns itself with the regeneration of trees, whereas new forestry emphasises biological diversity and the maintainance of complex ecosystems. The emergence of "New Forestry" means a new direction in forestry. KEY WORDS new forestry, ecosystem, landscape ecology, disturbanceecology, harvest-cutting methods, slash disposal
