About this book

This new edition of the classic introduction to the world's tropical rainforests has been completely updated. Reflecting important research into human impacts on rainforests, Whitmore provides a new global assessment of deforestation and logging patterns. Recent research into sustainability, conservation and the impact of forest fragmentation on biodiversity is incorporated. New data on seedling ecology, forest microclimates, and geological and climatic history have been added. The book remains unique in linking basic biology and ecology to silviculture, and remaining broad in scope.
