About this book

Apart from those islands which are of special geographical interest, this volume focuses on those where international tourism is a significant factor in the local economy, for example the Seychelles, Sri Lanka, Reunion or Hawaii, together with their specific regional problems such as rainforest destruction, rice cultivation and the impact of monocultures.
