This book has evolved out of a successful masters level course in `Conservation and Environmental Economics' taught for many years at the University College London. The wide range of contributing authors and their individual specialisms reflect the broad spectrum of disciplines covered - from biology and conservation management through to campaigning and economics.
'I cannot speak too highly of this book - the overall standard of presentation and production is excellent. It should be on the reading list of all university biology and environmental science courses, since it is the products of such courses who must deal with the major challenge facing our own species in the next 50 years: the sensible stewardship of the remaining forests. It also merits a place in school libraries, and will serve to provide a wealth of information to the concerned lay reader who seeks accessible, up-to-date information on the complexities of forest conservation.' Biologist, 46:1 (1999) 'An elegant glimpse of the complex issues involved... An impressive and tightly-edited interdisciplinary effort that highlights most key topics... Unusually comprehensive in scope in comparison with other books... An important teaching book and reference book for any library.' Northeastern Naturalist, 7:2
