The fragmentation of the tropical rain forests is the subject of this study, which looks at the devastating damage caused to these sensitive areas. By the year 2000 more than half of these forests will have been cut, causing increased soil erosion, watershed destabilization, climate degradation, and extinction of as many as 600,000 species. This volume summarizes what is known about the ecology, management, restoration, socioeconomics and conservation of fragmented forests, and identify key priorities for future work. Covering geographic areas from Southeast Asia and Australia to Madagascar and the New World, the book encapsulates contemporary knowledge and research. Thirty-three papers present the results of recent research and updates from decades-long projects in progress.
