9780415728591: Ecological Sustainability for Non-timber Forest Products: Dynamics and Case Studies of Harvesting (People and Plants International Conservation)

There is growing knowledge about and appreciation of the importance of Non-timber Forest Products (NTFPs) to rural livelihoods in developing countries, and to a lesser extent, developed countries. However, there is also an assumption on the part of policy-makers that any harvesting of wild animal or plant products from the forests and other natural and modified ecosystems must be detrimental to the long-term viability of target populations and species. This book challenges this idea and shows that while examples of such negative impacts certainly exist, there are also many examples of sustainable harvesting systems for NTFPs. 

The chapters review and present coherent and scientifically sound information and case studies on the ecologically sustainable use of NTFPs. They also outline a general interdisciplinary approach for assessing the sustainability of NTFP harvesting systems at different scales. A wide range of case studies is included from Africa, Asia and South America, using plant and animal products for food, crafts, textiles, medicines and cosmetics.

Review:

"This book is a useful contribution to the conservation and sustainability debate insofar as it draws attention to often neglected or overlooked NTFPs ... This text is especially relevant to advanced undergraduate and postgraduate courses in agriculture, development and environmental science..." - A.M. Mannion, Bulletin of the Briitsh Ecological Society

"Ecological Sustainability for Non-timber Forest Products is an important contribution to the study of sustainable use of wild plant and animal resources. I highly recommend it to ecologists, ethnobotanists and resource managers." – Economic Botany, Robert Voeks, California State University, USA
