The protection and conservation of forest land is a complex and emotive issue. Tropical forests have long been a source of livelihood for millions of people, and there is no reason why this should not continue. The essence of conservation is making informed decisions on the balance between utilisation and protection. This book brings the ideas and science underlying nature conservation to the attention of those responsible for managing tropical forests for a range of users. It grew from a series of notes for a training course in Uganda, and therefore includes many examples from that country. Includes black and white illustrations and colour photos.
