Sustainable harvest and marketing of rain forest products by Mark J Plotkin( Book )

5 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although the development and use of nontimber forest products from tropical regions hold tremendous potential as an economically viable alternative to deforestation, many questions remain. What species offer the greatest promise? What levels of harvest are sustainable? How can native peoples best be compensated for their knowledge and their efforts? In June 1991, Conservation International and the Asociacion Nacional para la Conservacion de la Naturaleza held a conference to address these and other questions. Attended by experts from around the world, including indigenous peoples, conservationists, academic researchers, and business leaders, the conference brought together individuals from all sides of the issue to share experiences and ideas. In this book Mark Plotkin and Lisa Famolare bring together these leading thinkers, who are working at the cutting edge of conservation and development. Topics covered include the use and conservation of ethnobotanical information, the potential uses of nontimber forest products from various regions of the Neotropics, the development and use of plants as medicines, and the international marketplace for nontimber forest products and how it can best be created and reached. Because of their special significance, a separate section is devoted to uses and potential uses of palm products. Among the contributors are: Al Gentry, Missouri Botanical Garden; Steven R. King, Shaman Pharmaceuticals; Gary Paul Nabhan, Native Seed/SEARCH; Richard Evans Schultes, Botanical Museum of Harvard University; and others from around the globe. Mark Plotkin is vice president for the program in plant conservation, and Lisa Famolare is a program associate at Conservation International, an organization dedicated to the conservation of ecosystems and biological diversity worldwide. This book will be of considerable importance to conservationists, public policy specialists concerned with development in the Southern Hemisphere, ethnobotanists, and those interested in the commercialization of rain forest products

Conservation in a changing world by Zoological Society of London and Conservation International Symposium( Book )

7 editions published between 1996 and 1999 in English and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As evidence for the rapid loss of biological diversity strengthens, there is widespread recognition of the need to identify priorities and techniques for conservation action. Much progress has been made in the development of quantitative methods for identifying priority areas based on what we know about species distributions, but we must now build an understanding of biological processes into conservation planning. Here, using studies at global to local scales, researchers consider how conservation planners can deal with the dynamic interactions of species in a changing world, where human impacts will continue to affect the environment in unprecedented ways
Neotropical birds : ecology and conservation( Book )

4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Communities indicate that the current focus for conservation action in the Amazonian lowlands is misplaced: these forests are still relatively intact. Instead, biological communities that are narrowly restricted to the lower slopes of the Andes, to the tropical deciduous forests, and to the once-extensive grasslands and scrubs of central Brazil - communities still largely ignored by conservationists - are the ones facing most immediate risks from current development
Wilderness : earth's last wild places by Patricio Robles Gil( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, entitled Wilderness: Earth's Last Wild Places, we focus on the world's terrestrial wilderness areas, building on the concept of major tropical wilderness areas first defined by Mittermeier in 1988." "The data presented here are the result of an analysis carried out over the past two years, mainly by Conservation International's Center for Applied Biodiversity Science (CABS) with support from its Global Conservation Fund (GCF), and involving nearly 200 specialists from all around the world, of which 125 are authors of the various chapters in this book. In addition, this volume is illustrated with over 400 beautiful photos by some of the world's most acclaimed natural photographers." "In the introduction to this book, we briefly review the history of the wilderness concept, discuss its legal definitions, describe the activities of a number of organizations involved in wilderness protection, and try to develop criteria for "wilderness" based mainly on intactness, size, and human population density. In the individual chapters that follow, we provide a detailed analysis of the 37 areas that qualified for wilderness status in this study, focusing on their biodiversity, their key flagship species, their human cultures, the threats to their survival, and what is being done to conserve them."--Jacket

Still counting : biodiversity exploration for conservation : the first 20 years of the Rapid Assessment Program by Rapid Assessment Program (Conservation International)( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This exciting book outlines the inception, history, and achievements of Conservation International's Rapid Assessment Program (RAP) over its first two decades, 1990-2010. The philosophy and methodology of RAP, its major goals and results, and the "feet-in-the-mud" attitude that has made the program so effective are featured. The book profiles nearly 80 expeditions to some of the most remote but often highly threatened sites around the world, highlighting the impacts of RAP surveys in relation to the establishment and improvement of protected areas, the discovery of species new to science, scientific capacity building, spatial planning for conservation, and enhancing human well-being"--Cover
