Media reviews
As well as detailed information on the region, the book also contains well-summarized reviews of the underlying ecology - definitions of the types of biodiversity, species-area relationships, characteristics of extinction-prone species - which are useful in their own right. Newmark is to be commended for his realistic approach to conserving biodiversity. (Bulletin of the British Ecological Society) "Newmark's book is a mine of useful information and reviews a wide range of ecological literature over a broad taxonomic spectrum. ... a valuable resource to people actively engaged in the management of the forests." (Mountain Research and Development)
