A comprehensive guide to plant conservation for layperson and professional, addressing major aspects of contemporary plant conservation, covering sociological, economic and taxonomic viewpoints.
Case study material is gathered from around the world, including Pakistan, Malaysia, Uganda, Ethiopia, Nepal and Kenya. The book acts as a unifying text for the excellent `People and Plants' series, integrating studies and methodologies considered in previous volumes and pointing out in one publication the valuable lessons to be learned.
'With this book the authors achieved a real synthesis of the results the 'People and Plants' program has amassed over fourteen years. The book gives any reader a great wealth of information about all facets of a difficult topic...it is a resource that nobody with serious interest in plant conservation can ignore.' Economic Botany, 2006, Vol. 60 'I have been waiting for this book. Firstly it is part of a consistently excellent range of books from the People and Plants programme and, secondly, the lead author Alan Hamilton is a widely admired leader in plant conservation...The Hamiltons are to be congratulated. The book is well written and the text reflects Alani? s lively conversational style and his ability to tell a good story. This book is practical, with techniques for information gathering clearly outlined, relevant to much of the world, timely and fascinating. As with others in this series the book deserves to be translated and handed to every rural development officer, forester and conservationist as a reference and inspiration.'
