DNS - recursion/forwarding

Simple question.

What is the difference between recursion and forwarding in DNS?

As far as I can see (MS Press) they both send DNS queries from a client that the local server can't resolve on to upstream DNS servers and then pass on the reply to the requesting client.

Can anyone clarify the difference, if there is one?
