This book brings together for the first time biological and social scientists with the expertise necessary to document the ways in which the economic value of neotropical wildlife can affect conservation. The contributors, who have done extensive research in Latin America, explore the importance of wildlife to people, the impact of the use of wildlife on animal populations, and whether the present pattern of human use is--or could be made--sustainable. "John Robinson and Kent Redford provide an invaluable overview of the status of wildlife use, from a conservation perspective, in Latin America. "This book is required reading for everyone in conservation, from professionals, students and the general reader, and particularly those who are concerned about the impact of human populations on wild species in developing countries, irrespective of their geographic focus...We know very little about the requirements for sustainable use. This book is an important step toward remedying that."--Stephen Edwards, New Scientist
