About this book

Southeast Asia is highly diversified in terms of socio-ecosystems and biodiversity, but is undergoing dramatic environmental and social changes. These changes characterize the recent period and could be illustrated by the effects of the Green Revolution from the late 1960 and 1970s to the insertion in the global trade and increasing agronomic intensification of the last decade.

Biodiversity Conservation in Southeast Asia provides theoretical overviews and challenges for applied research in living resource management, conservation ecology, health ecology and conservation planning in Southeast Asia. Five key themes are addressed: origin and evolution of Southeast Asian biodiversity; challenges in conservation biology; ecosystem services and biodiversity; managing biodiversity and living resources; policy, economics and governance of biodiversity. Detailed case studies are included from Thailand and the Lower Mekong Basin, while other chapters address cross-cutting themes applicable to the Southeast Asia region.

This is a valuable resource for academics and students in the areas of Ecology, Environmental Policy, Environmental Management and Conservation.
