About this book

The Lely and Nassau Plateaus in eastern Suriname contain a wide range of habitats-they also serve as an important watershed for the region and offer potential employment through small-scale mining. Until now, information on the area's flora and fauna was incomplete, making conservation planning difficult. This book presents the results of a 2005 biological survey to the region that collected data on birds, mammals, fishes, and selected insect species. It documents the species found and makes specific conservation recommendations for the plateaus.
