Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
The various chapters examine the current rates of deforestation...All are stimulatingly written, well illustrated with recent findings...This is no rehash of already well-known data, nor only a cry from the heart about the likely evils of deforestation. All of us who are interested in this massive problem will find much in this book that will help both stimulate and inform debate - Bulletin of the Ecological Society; ...the summarised information and references to sources provide and up-to-date situation report on which future action can be based - Forestry; it does provide some very thought-provoking ideas. I recommend it to anyone who is interested in the future fate of species and the factors that affect them - The Quarterly Review of Biology
