About this book

Based on extensive international field research, this volume highlights one solution for preserving this precious resource: empowering local people who depend on the forest for survival. Stone and D'Andrea show the fundamental importance of tropical forest ecosystems and deepen our sense of urgency to save them for the benefit of millions of rural people in tropical and subtropical regions, as well as for countless species of plants and animals.
