1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A passionate call to action, this important volume exhorts us to preserve the delicate ecosystems of the world - while we can. At a time when we are more aware than ever of the vulnerability of the earth and of the uncertainty of its future, this important book is at once timely and stunningly beautiful. A great way to visit the world's most precious natural settings without having a negative impact on them, Global 200 - Lands without Frontiers identifies 200 of the world's most critical, endangered natural sites. Stunning photographs, presented in the large-scale format of the book, convey a diverse range of global eco-regions, showcasing the unique characteristics of each region and the threats to each, and demonstrating the need for us to take action now to preserve these irreplaceable natural resources.Vibrant full-colour photographs transport us to the East African Acacia savannas which are home to an exceptional diversity of large land mammals and birds and which are threatened by poaching, agriculture, land use conflicts with pastoralists, and uncontrolled trophy hunting. We visit the Patagonian Steppe, one of the largest single habitats in the world, and home to a number of threatened and endangered endemic species, and learn the sobering reality of this largely unprotected region. From the forest of Borneo to the Hawaiian forests and marine eco-region, from the Siberian taiga to the Antarctic Peninsula and the Weddell Sea, this volume demonstrates the beauty, fragility, and invaluable significance of eco-regions around the world. Conservationists, nature lovers, fine photography aficionados, and armchair travellers alike will appreciate the superb photography and urgent message of this call to action

Carving out a future : forests, livelihoods and the international woodcarving trade by Brian M Belcher( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Very little has yet been written about the cultural or economic contributions of woodcarving to people's livelihoods or the consequences of felling hardwood and softwood trees for the international woodcarving trade. Carving Out a Future is the first examination of this trade and its critical links to rural livelihoods, biodiversity, conservation, forestry and the international trade regime. A range of case studies from Australia, Bali, India, Africa and Mexico provides a lens for examining the critical issues relating to the significant impacts of woodcarving on forests, conservation efforts, the need to promote sustainable rural livelihoods and efforts to promote trade so that skilled artisans in developing countries get a fair economic return."--Jacket
