About this book

Language: English, also available in French and Spanish

Restoring Tropical Forests: A Practical Guide is a user-friendly and globally relevant practical guide to restoring forests throughout the tropics. Based on the concepts, knowledge and innovative techniques developed at Chiang Mai University's Forest Restoration Research Unit, Restoring Tropical Forests: A Practical Guide will enable substantial improvements in existing forest restoration projects and provide a key resource to enable new ones.

Restoring Tropical Forests: A Practical Guide presents three aspects of the restoration of tropical forest ecosystems for biodiversity recovery and environmental protection. Firstly, the general concepts of tropical forest dynamics and regeneration that are relevant to the practice of effective tropical forest restoration are covered. This is followed by proven restoration techniques and case studies of their successful application, and research methods to refine such techniques and adapt them to local ecological and socio-economic conditions.

"This is very much a hands-on guide for improving degraded tropical forests based on tried techniques developed at Chiang Mai University in Thailand. [...] If you don't happen to have the odd degraded forest to hand, this still makes a very valuable, applied teaching resource. And, unusually when looking [at] world problems, this book gives a huge amount of encouragement that things can be made better."
– Peter Thomas, The BES Bulletin 45(2), June 2014
