About this book

The loss of the earth's biological diversity is widely recognized as a critical environmental problem. That loss is most severe in developing countries, where the conditions of human existence are most difficult. "Conserving Biodiversity" presents an agenda for research that can provide information to formulate policy and design conservation programs in the Third World. The book includes discussions of research needs in the biological sciences, as well as economics and anthropology, areas of critical importance to conservation and sustainable development. Although, specifically directed toward development agencies, non-governmental organizations, and decision makers in developing nations, this volume should be of interest to all who are involved in the conservation of biological diversity.
