About this book

Language: English with abstracts in Spanish

From the introduction:

"The present volume gives an overview of the Golfo Dulce region by providing a selection of aspects of natural and cultural history, in the knowledge that no single book can be comprehensive in its coverage. Generally, we tried to group papers with special scientific information around a more open and indroductory “survey paper”.

The first series of papers deals with abiotic characteristics, such as geography, climate and geology. The bulk of the papers refer to biological aspects, starting with plant biology (flora and vegetation, including the first presentation of a vegetation map: Weissenhofer et al.) and followed by animal biology and plant-animal interactions.

The last large section covers human aspects. The start is with the human history of the region and the historical roots of nature exploration. Several papers are devoted to nature conservation and current protection projects. Finally, the papers on ecotourism may give an idea of the problems of the local people and the potential for a sustainable development in the region."
