Examines current conservation strategies and considers the shortcomings of parks and protected areas both from ecological and institutional perspectives and explains how seemingly pristine environments can gradually degrade. Terborgh also describes the difficult social context - a debilitating combination of poverty, corruption, abuses of power, political instability, and a frenzied scramble for quick riches - in which tropical conservation must take place.

Contents
