Tropical rainforests are rainforests that occur in areas of tropical rainforest climate in which there is no dry season – all months have an average precipitation of at least 60 mm – and may also be referred to as lowland equatorial evergreen rainforests are typically found between 10 degrees north and south of the equator (see map); they are a sub-set of the tropical.

This book integrates the latest global developments in forestry science and practice and their relevance for the sustainable management of tropical forests. The influence of social dimensions on the development of silvicultural concepts is another spotlight. Ecology and silvicultural options form.   A tropical rainforest is a rainforest with a high rainfall that grows in a tropical region. Tropical regions – and therefore tropical rainforests – are found near the Equator, an imaginary line that circles the globe, dividing the northern and southern hemispheres. Running parallel above and below the Equator are two more imaginary lines.

Managing the Wild: Stories of People and Plants and Tropical Forests, by Charles M. Peters. Excluding local people from conservation is not the way to preserve vital vegetation, as it is they whose practices produce the ecologies we value, finds Steven Yearley.

This book will be a useful management resource for foresters or a supplementary text for those studying tropical rainforest ecology." (Southeastern Naturalist, Vol. 5 (3), )Cited by: To highlight the numerous efforts undertaken in forest management within the past 20 years, FAO recently launched a new initiative entitled "In search of excellence" to identify and document successful examples of sustainable management.

This document contains in-depth analyses in the form of 14 case studies. The management practices identified demonstrate the evolution of the forest. A holistic approach to the management and conservation of rainforests is developed throughout the book.

The focus on South-East Asian forestry will be widened to include Africa and Latin America. Recent controversial issues such as biofuels and carbon credits with respect to tropical forests and their inhabitants will be discussed.

Peterss thirty-five years of fieldwork around the globe, these absorbing stories argue that the best solutions for sustainably managing tropical forests come from the people who live in them. As Peters says, "Local people know a lot about managing tropical forests, and they are much better at it than we are.".

Research in tropical forestry is confronted with the task of finding strategies to alleviate pressure on remaining forests, and techniques to enhance forest regeneration and restore abandoned lands, using productive alternatives that can be attractive to local human populations. In addition, sustainable forestry in tropical countries must be supported by.
