About this book

Tropical rainforests are disappearing at an alarming rate, causing unprecedented losses in biodiversity and ecosystem services. The stability of rainforest margin area has been identified as a critical factor in the preservation of tropical forests. Understanding the ecological, social and economic determinants of land use change in tropical rainforest margins on different spatial scales is the key to identifying more suitable development objectives, such as nature conservation, poverty reduction, and economic development of rural areas. This book will contribute to an improved understanding of the processes that have destabilizing effects on ecological and socio-economic systems of tropical rain forest margins, as well as striving to integrate environmental, technological and socio-economic issues in their solution.

From the reviews: The 22 chapters of the book are organized in three parts. ! In summary, 'Stability of Tropical Rainforest Margins' presents a broad overview of the research area and can be recommended to anybody concerned with conservation and use of tropical rainforest from graduate students to senior scientists. ! Each chapter provides extensive lists of references which might be of help for further readings in the specific field of research. A number of flow-charts, photos and figures illustrate the research questions." (Nina Farwig, Basic and Applied Ecology, Issue 9, 2008) "In this book, 91 authors contribute their results and views in 22 chapters, organized in three parts. The chapters are based on papers presented at the international 'STORMA' (Stability of rain forest margins in Indonesia) Symposium held in Goettingen, Germany, in 2005. ! there is much of interest for a very wide spectrum of scientists and policy makers dealing with tropical rain forests."
