Beschreibung:
The floodplain forests of the Amazon, the world's largest river, are among the most threatened habitats in South America. Yet little is known about how these unique, seasonally flooded forests were used in the past, or their current importance to farmers, livestock owners, and fisherfolk. This book explores the natural history knowledge of the floodplain inhabitants and how we might better use their knowledge to promote sound conservation and developmentpolicies.
