About this book

The Amazonian rain forest forms one of the most precious ecosystems and provides habitat for more than 50 per cent of plant and animal species. This unique ecosystem is highly disturbed by human activities, which causes biodiversity losses. Biodiversity monitoring and conservation plays one of the most important roles of tropical environment protection.

This book focuses on the assessment of species diversity and species richness in various land use systems. It also discusses the challenges and opportunities facing the Brazilian ecotourism industry and the establishment of an eco-triple helix in the Brazilian Amazon region.
