The book has been written for senior undergraduate and graduate students, scientists, and managers with an interest in tropical habitat conservation and management. The book also includes short biographies of some of the world's most eminent conservation scientists followed by a brief set of questions and answers that focus on some of the most pertinent and pressing issues in tropical conservation biology today.
