African Rain Forest Ecology and Conservation: An Interdisciplinary Perspective
Abstract:Current conservation strategies focus on achieving sustainable development by viewing the protection of species and habitats within a broader economic and social context. This approach places complex demands on conservation projects, particularly within the African rain forest, with its great biological, political, and historical diversity. Originally dating from a conference organized by the Wildlife Conservation Society in 1993, this book brings together contributions that allow the examination of whether successful, integrated strategies are evident within African rain forest conservation.
