Chile’s Native Forests: A Conservation Legacy is a book about one of the wildest remaining temperate forest regions of the world, including the largest temperate rainforest outside of North America. All of the nation’s major forest ecosystems are described.

The work is richly illustrated with maps and photos, and includes brief histories of forest exploitation and conservation over the last 500 years.

The book also shares what the many Chileans feel are the greatest threats to these wild forests, and what experts believe to be the highest priorities for conservation.

Chile’s Native Forests is an essential reference for those with an interest in forests and forest conservation in Chile or Latin America, for Chile-bound eco-travelers, or for anyone concerned about the future of the world’s temperate forests.
