Conserving Biological Diversity in Managed Tropical Forests Edited by Jill M. Blockhus, Mark R. Dillenbeck, Jeffrey A. Sayer and Per Wegge Proceedings of a Workshop held at the IUCN General Assembly Perth, Australia 30 November -1 December IUCN / ITTO File Size: 3MB. Tropical forests are critical to hundreds of millions of rural people as sources of nutrition, health care, raw materials, and cash income. Traditional medicine, based largely on tropical plants, nurtures four-fifths of humanity, while rainforest plants provide key ingredients in pharmaceuticals worth tens of billions of dollars annually. Managed forests are important landscape components in tropical regions and may contribute to biodiversity conservation. Yet, managing tropical forests sustainably requires an understanding of. JOHN SPEARS. Forestry Adviser, World Bank, Washington, D.C. A range of agriculture, forestry, fiscal, and other policy initiatives will be needed if the Asian Region is to preserve a significant proportion of its remaining million hectares of biologically diverse tropical forests and to sustain a timber industry beyond the year These forests have been reduced by one-half since the.
The report also recommended that tropical studies encompass a broader range of primary and modified ecosystems (including cutover forests, naturally reforested clearings, tree plantations, and various agroforestry systems) and devote more attention to the role that specific management strategies had played in reducing biological diversity. Conserving Tropical Forests and protecting/conserving the natural resources, but also in changing the behaviors of people who use these resources. The actions directed at the people using the resources are as important as actions targeting conservation and sustainable utilization of tropical forests and biological diversity as part of.

The existing reserve network is too small, major expansion.
Book Description: Recent decades have seen unprecedented growth in the scale and intensity of industrial forestry. Directly and indirectly, it has degraded the wildlife and ecological integrity of these tropical forests, prompting a need to evaluate the impact of current forest management practices and reconsider how best to preserve the integrity of the biosphere. temperate or tropical forests, mountains, cold and hot deserts, oceans, wetlands, rivers, and coral reefs.
