About this book

China and Taiwan have roughly one-eighth of the world's known species. These states' approaches to biodiversity issues thus have global as well as national repercussions. Gerald McBeath and Tse-Kang Leng explore the ongoing conflicts in these two states between economic development, typically pursued by businesses and governments, and communities seeking to preserve and protect local human and ecosystem values.
