By: Anthony B. Anderson (author)Paperback
1 - 2 weeks availability
Alternatives to Deforestation explores some of the possible sustainable uses of the world's largest rain forest, the Amazon. The collection by scientists, policymakers, and foundations presents innovative approaches and technologies that will permit simultaneous use and conservation of the rain forest, and will benefit the population of Amazonia as a whole, rather than just a small rural minority. By presenting sustainable land-use alternatives that are both economically viable and ecologically sound, this book represents a valuable contribution in the effort to end the tragic consequences of tropical deforestation.
Anthony B. Anderson is a program officer at the Ford Foundation in Rio de Janeiro. Previously a senior scientist of the Goeldi Museum in Bel m, Brazil, he has worked for fifteen years as an ecologist in the Amazon, specializing in the ecology and management of forest resources.
