About this book

Presents a balanced, scientifically rigorous consideration of the link between commercial consumptive use of wild species and biodiversity conservation. The outgrowth of a four-year WWF study, the book provides a primer on the CCU-biodiversity link and an interdisciplinary analysis of the major economic, social, and ecological factors involved, along with guidelines for incorporating biodiversity conservation into commerical harvesting programmes.
