About this book

Useful synthesis of current approaches to tropical rainforests as well as a sustained argument that the current overuse, misuse, and abuse of these forests is a result of cultural and political problems, rather than scientific inadequacies.


"The heart of Bruenig's book makes a case for sustainability in tropical forestry, using Sarawak as the principal source of examples and justifications." --Ecology
"The book compiles eleven chapters of comprehensive assessment into holistic, integrated strategies for the conservation and management of tropical rainforests. Practical examples and field research studies from Amazonia and Southeast Asia are used to identify the processes regulating the rainforest ecosystem and essential to its sustainability."--BIOSIS
