About this book

People are familiar with most of the natural resources of the neotropics – chocolate, rubber, etc – but surprisingly one of the most useful resources, animals, is usually overlooked. This important text moves this issue to the fore. Animals are central to the lives of the region's indigenous peoples, can be farmed or hunted commercially, and can attract tourists; this could easily generate the income necessary to preserve both the wildlife and their habitat. With contributions from both biological and social scientists, Neotropical Wildlife Use and Conservation shows how neotropical wildlife can have economic as well as aesthetic value. An invaluable text for development agencies, conservation organisations and governmental departments involved in the region.
