Beyond Tropical Deforestation
'This is a collaboration of original research papers written by specialists from around the world, including ecologists, forest researchers, geographers and environmental engineers. The contributors cover issues of deforestation, forest cover dynamics and forest development and are separated into sections based on changes in forest cover estimates, the range of human/forest interactions and forest area dynamics in relation to land use and development. New prospects for research are explored, and principles are illustrated using both colour and black & white figures. The topical subject of deforestation is covered in depth, and the range of disciplines and nationalities ensures a well-rounded and balanced approach.'
