About the Author

Timothy Charles Whitmore, Lecturer, Department of Geography, University of Cambridge, Downing Place, Cambridge, England CB2 3EN.


A greater awareness has led to bolder initiatives emerging to promote sustainable management of these forests, such as the rapidly approaching Year 2000 Objective set by the ITTO. The most significant changes in this edition address these issues with an extra chapter added, focusing on management for sustainability. ... In the end this excellant book is positive that a sustainable balance might be struck before the forests disappear. Tim Baker/East African
Wilde Life Society/Afr. Jr. Ecol.,38, 93-94
