Environmental Conservation is one of the longest-standing, most highly-cited of the interdisciplinary environmental science journals. It includes research papers, reports, comments and subject reviews addressing environmental policy, practice, and natural and social science of environmental concern at the global level, informed by rigorous local level case studies. ISBN: OCLC Number: Language Note: Papers in English; some in French. Notes: Selected papers from the Conference on Conservation of West and Central African Rainforests, held in Abidjan, Nov. ,

The PLOS ONE Collection “Measuring forest conservation effectiveness” brings together a series of studies that evaluate the effectiveness of tropical forest conservation policies and programs with the goal of measuring conservation success and associated co-benefits. This overview piece describes the geographic and methodological scope of these studies, as well as the policy Cited by: The approach draws from the state-of the art across a variety of disciplines – spatial (GIS) analysis, spatial econometrics, economic theory, and conservation biology – to create an approach that can guide the location and level of investments by estimating benefits and environmental costs at a highly disaggregated spatial by: 1.

Tropical Forest Conservation: An Economic Assessment of Nature-based tourism and sustainable harvesting of forest products are the centerpieces of ICDPs and related initiatives. This book assesses the viability of conservation strategies predicated on the adoption of environmentally sound enterprises in and around threatened habitats Cited by: Growing disillusionment with conservation–development initiatives in tropical forests has fomented a polarised debate in the literature and policy circles over the role of forest people in protected areas and rain forest conservation (see Schwartzman et al.,Wilshusen et al.,Brechin et al., ).

The debate, which pits observers Cited by:   A collection of studies published by the journal PLOS ONE earlier this month seeks to fill this knowledge gap by evaluating the effectiveness of numerous tropical forest conservation policies and. This important book for scientists and nonscientists alike calls attention to a most urgent global problem: the rapidly accelerating loss of plant and animal species to increasing human population pressure and the demands of economic development.

Based on a major conference sponsored by the National Academy of Sciences and the Smithsonian Institution, Biodiversity creates a. Targeting Conservation–Development Initiatives in Tropical Forests: Insights from Analyses of Rain Forest Use and Economic Reliance among Amazonian Peasants.

Tropical Forest Conservation Initiatives. A U.S. Congressional Research Service report found that sincedebt-for-nature swaps have generated $1 billion toward tropical forest conservation initiatives.

[9] This $1 billion is an investment in the ecosystem services that companies depend upon. Ecosystem services are external benefits. Knowing the economic value of the benefits that forests provide can make forests’ contribution to livelihoods and economies visible, enabling smarter decisions.

Conservation International has developed innovative ways to quantify the value of forests so that countries and companies can measure their impact — and reliance — on forests.

In this elegant book, we have defined ‘Tropical Forests’ broadly, into five different themes: (1) tropical forest structure, synergy, synthesis, (2) tropical forest fragmentation, (3) impact of anthropogenic pressure, (4) Geographic Information System and remote sensing, and (5) tropical forest protection and by: 3.
