About this book

First published as Plants and Protected Areas by Nelson Thornes

Conservation of plant resources is often focused on seed banks and botanical gardens. However, the two authors of People, Plants and Protected Areas present a comprehensive conservation strategy that complements this ex-situ approach with practical guidance on in-situ management and conservation of plant resources. People, Plants and Protected Areas aims to facilitate better management of protected areas and to illustrate new approaches to conservation of plants within their landscapes. It draws on concepts from forestry, the agricultural sciences, anthropology, ethnology and ethnobotany and should be useful to practitioners, academics and policy-makers.
