Annotation:Motivated by concern about the loss of biological and cultural diversity in the world’s rain forests, contributors from various professional and academic backgrounds discuss various ways in which people use, manage, and impact the rain forest environment. Individual essays present case studies from South and Central America, Africa, and Asia and address an array of issues, including tropical rain forest ecology; depictions of rain forests in Western art and literature; human interactions with the rain forest in different regions and historical periods; indigenous struggles for justice; conservation strategies; and the implications of deforestation, business ventures, and development schemes.
