About this book

From the lowland rainforests of the Colombian Amazon to the rugged habitat of Rwanda's mountain gorillas, civil, ethnic, and international wars have had severe impacts on tropical forests and the communities they sustain. Conservationists have to reassess their efforts and adapt their strategies to a new set of responsibilities and urgent challenges. This book explores these challenges and the lessons learned by conservationists working in conflict zones around the world.
