Annotation

"The lessons and recommendations throughout the book, and especially those in the last chapter, are forceful and risk-taking. It will be read and discussed at the highest levels."--Gail Hewson-Hull, Project Manager of Science Now, California Academy of Sciences "This book is an excellent synthesis of the ecological basis of biodiversity conservation in the seasonally dry forest ecosystems of northwest Costa Rica, as well as a valuable analysis of the effectiveness of conservation efforts in a country renowned for its global leadership in protecting and inventorying biological diversity."--Gary S. Hartshorn, President and CEO, Organization for Tropical Studies " "Biodiversity Conservation in Costa Rica "captures the mystique and realities of land and wildlife conservation in one of the world's most fascinating and threatened systems. The authors blend the scientific, social, political, and legal into a commanding, optimistic treatment of the ongoing evolution of the human-nature experience."--Justin O. Schmidt, Southwestern Biological Institute.  Read more...
