This book describes a field-level assessment of how people living near the Mount Elgon National Park in Uganda use the park's forest resources. The authors argue that extractive use of a range of timber and non-timber forest products, if properly monitored and controlled, is not necessarily a threat to biodiversity. They explain clearly which data gathering methods were chosen and why, and how the results of this assessment can be used to develop collaborative management agreements with local people. Interdisciplinary and practically oriented, the book should be obligatory reading for protected area managers and others who aim to involve rural people in forest and nature conservation.
