What People are saying about this

James Gustave Speth

Working Forests in the Neotropics brings together a wide-range of perspectives from both the natural and social sciences addressed to one of the most critical problems of our time: can a path be found between the clearing and conversion of tropical forests and setting them aside as protected wilderness? This volume contains an up-to-date collection of cutting-edge articles from leaders in the field. It is an excellent effort, one I highly recommend to readers who want to learn more about prospects for tropical forests and the people who depend on them.

James Gustave Speth, Dean of School of Forestry & Environmental Studies, Yale University
