Description

Tropical Rainforests presents the most up-to-date and wide-ranging review of the problems and prospects of the world's most complex and abundant ecosystem. Chris Park examines where and how fast rainforests are being cleared, drawing on examples from all major forest areas. The consequences of clearance are examined at local, regional and global scales. The author achieves a balanced overview of the current state of the world's rainforests, discussing both the consequences of clearance (for ecology, environments and peoples) and the possible solutions (such as conservation and protection, reforestation, sustainable management, changing tropical timber trade and international investment programmes). Well illustrated with maps, figures and photographs and with a comprehensive bibliography, Tropical Rainforests provides an essential introduction for students of Geography, Ecology and the environment, teachers, environmentalists, development practitioners and the general public.
