This unique resource offers an overview of wildlife conservation and environmental planning in the third world. Sponsored by the Bombay Natural History Society, the work draws together the work of leading experts who examine a wide range of issues in conservation and wildlife biology as they affect developing countries where remedies and problem-solving are often vastly more difficult than in wealthier parts of the world. Topics addressed include the over-exploitation of natural resources, environmental degradation, animal preservation, national forestry and reserve policies, and many other critical issues. Lavishly illustrated, and authoritative in its coverage, this volume offers a stimulating examination that will be of interest to both scientists and environmentally concerned general readers.
