About this book

Using the experience of the Parks in Peril programme - a joint project of The Nature Conservancy and its partner organizations in Latin America and the Caribbean established to foster better park management - this book presents a broad analysis of current trends in park management and the implications for biodiversity conservation. Case studies highlight the interaction of ecosystems, local peoples, and policy, and describe the context of field-based conservation from the perspective of those actually implementing programmes.
