Abstract:

Tropical forests are widely recognized as the most species-rich terrestrial ecosystems on earth, and include many of the world's most endangered habitats and organisms. Biodiverse, economically crucial, and ecologically irreplaceable - tropical forests have captured the attention of scientists, policy makers, and all thoughtful citizens. Tropical Forests: Management and Ecology addresses the need for a synthesis of information on both the ecological and the socioeconomic aspects of human use of tropical forest ecosystems. This book will be a resource for ecologists, tropical biologists, foresters, natural resource specialists, and policymakers with an interest in the tropics.
