Media reviews

The value of this book is that it treats and compares an extremely wide range of topics. Because of the extensive bibliography the specialist or the person looking for details on any one topic is unlikely to be frustrated. A list of further reading is provided for each chapter and is a good introdution to the up-to-date scientific literature about the humid tropics. This text is likely to be widely used by students of many different disciplines. The Times Higher Education Supplement "Three geographers have come together to produce a well-integrated text on the major features of the environment in the humid tropics, with emphasis on their interrelationships and the importance of the human dimension... This book merits wide readership and provides and excellent text for many university courses." B. A. Whitton, International Journal of Environment Studies
