Synopsis: The Amazonian territories of Brazil, Bolivia and Ecuador encompass nearly half of the world's remaining tropical rainforest and contain a wealth of biodiversity whose value we have only begun to appreciate. This book is an authoritative analysis of the socioeconomic and biophysical factors operating at local, national and global levels that serve to promote deforestation in this delicate region.

About the Author: Charles H. Wood is director of the Center for Latin American Studies at the University of Florida. He has coauthored and co-edited several books, including Contested Frontiers in Amazonia and Frontier Expansion in Amazonia. Roberto Porro is an agronomist trained at the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil, and a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Florida.

Book Description Gainesville University Press of Florida, 2002., 2002. Octavo, paperback,386 pp.,illustrations, maps. The Amazonian territories of Brazil, Bolivia, and Ecuador encompass nearly half of the world's remaining tropical rainforest and contain a wealth of biodiversity whose value we have only begun to appreciate. Deforestation and Land Use in the Amazon is an authoritative analysis of the socioeconomic and biophysical factors operating at local, national, and global levels that serve to promote deforestation in this delicate region. The leading scholars and specialists in this volume, from both Latin America and the United States, present a uniquely interdisciplinary study of the historical, economic, and political causes accounting for the pace and pattern of the area's deforestation. Their collected research provides a highly instructive sampler of the best and most useful approaches to land use and deforestation across the broad range of disciplines, agencies, and orientations involved, from the long-term impact of road construction projects, colonization schemes, and commodity prices to immediate concerns over quality of life, water availability, and climate variation. Heavily illustrated with numerous maps, tables, and charts, the book is an unmatched resource for planners, preservationists, regulatory agencies, demographers, and anyone interested in this environmentally strategic part of the world. Slightly damaged copy. Seller Inventory # 19481
