About this book

Result of an IUCN workshop, which provides a conservationist's perception of how fast tropical forests are being lost and what the consequences are for biological diversity. It compares extinction rate predictions derived from models of fragmentation of habitats and observed directly in lightly-logged and unlogged forests.
