Summary
"Timber, Tourists, and Temples brings together the leading biologists, social scientists, and conservationists working in the Maya Forest to present in a single volume information on the intricate social and political issues and complex scientific and management problems to be resolved there. It explores methods of supporting the biological foundation of the region and keeping alive its unique and diverse ecosystem. The wealth of information included in this pathbreaking work will be valuable not only for researchers involved with the Maya Forest but for anyone concerned with the protection, use, and management of tropical forest ecosystems throughout the world."--Jacket
