About this product
- DescriptionDiagsing Wild Species Harvest bridges gaps of kwledge fragmented among scientific disciplines as it addresses this multifaceted phemen that is simultaneously global and local. The authors emphasize the interwoven nature of issues specific to the ecological, ecomic, and socio-cultural realms of wild species harvest. The book presents the diagsing wild species harvest procedure as a universal approach that integrates seven thematic perspectives to harvest systems: resource dynamics, costs and benefits, management, governance, kwledge, spatiality, and legacies. When analyzed, these themes help to build a holistic understanding of this globally important phemen. Scholars, professionals and students in various fields related to natural resources will find the book a valuable resource. Wild species form important resources for people worldwide, and their harvest is a major driver of ecosystem change. Tropical forests regions, including Amazonia, are among those parts of the world where wild species are particularly important for people's livelihoods and larger ecomies. This book draws on tangible experiences from Amazonia, presented in lively narratives intermingling scientific information with stories of the people engaged in harvest and management of wild species. These stories are linked to relevant theory of wild species harvest and wider discussions on conservation, development, and the global quest of sustainability.
