About this book

Focuses on the economic development of nontimber forest products, such as medicine, latexes, oils and resins, which can be extracted with little or no damage to the forest ecosystem. Based on a June 1991 Conservation International Symposium in Panama, this book brings together some of the world's leading rainforest experts, such as Richard Schultes, Alwyn Gentry and Gary Nabhan.
