About this book

Based on a study commissioned by the WWF, this volume draws together a diverse group of authorities to discuss the conditions under which harvesting wild species for human consumption may act as a conservation tool, rather than adopting the more usual routes, through protected areas, etc. Presenting fifteen case studies from around the world - in areas ranging from fisheries and forestry to non-timber forest products and trophy hunting - the authors explore the link between sustainable development and biodiversity conservation.
