Sustaining tropical forest biodiversity

Sustaining tropical forest biodiversity

Journal of Sustainable Forestry 5(1/2): 217-234

Tropical forests are very rich in biological diversity and form an important economic and ecological resource. This biodiversity is of great value for communities living in or near these forests as a ready source of subsistence and cash income, and for the world at large as a source of tropical timber and non-timber products and a repository of genetic and chemical information. However, this biological complexity is diminishing rapidly.
