9780131792272: The Conservation Atlas of Tropical Forests
From Library Journal:

Following the World Conservation Union (IUCN)'s Conservation Atlas of Tropical Forests: Asia and the Pacific (1991), this reference work on Africa's tropical forests features contributions from over 100 scholars, researchers, and conservationists worldwide. In Part 1, ten chapters provide a background and overview of the continent's forests. Topics covered include history; biological diversity; effects of population, agriculture, and the timber trade; forest management and conservation; and comments concerning the future. Twenty-two chapters in Part 2 deal with individual African countries or a small group of related countries. The contributors follow a standard outline for the country chapters, which makes comparisons between the countries much easier. Each chapter's introductory section provides the geographical and historical background of the country discussed. Other sections deal with its forests, its resources and management, deforestation, biodiversity, conservation areas, and recent conservation efforts. The text is packed with information, including statistics from the United Nations' Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), IUCN, and other sources. A list of references ends each chapter. Color maps of the individual countries represent the most up-to-date boundaries available for forests and forest types, plus existing and proposed conservation areas. There are also numerous tables and illustrations. This series' broad scope, which is unmatched in other recent books, makes this highly recommended for academic libraries and for public libraries with collection interests in Africa or world environmental issues. Libraries who need just an affordable one-volume reference should have The Last Rain Forests: A World Conservation Atlas ( LJ 1/91).
