The authors present fresh perspectives on the major global crisis of deforestation from a wide range of fields including biological ecology, forest history, conservation biology, anthropology, political economy, and development economics." "Tropical Deforestation, enriched with more than fifty photographs, illustrations, and tables, along with a comprehensive bibliography, includes coverage of Central and South America, Africa, the Philippines, Indonesia, and the Indian subcontinent. Considering the effects of natural resource use in prehistory and colonial history and the rapid ecosystem depletion occuring today, investigating new technologies and efforts to involve indigenous people in conservation and development, the book presents an excellent overview of the causes, consequences, and possible solutions to deforestation."--Jacket." ;
