About the Authors
  • This book was published in 2007. Protected areas have emerged as major arenas of dispute concerning both indigenous and environmental protection. In the Malay Archipelago, which contains two of the twenty-five biodiversity hotspots identified globally, rampant commercial exploitation is jeopardizing species and rural livelihoods. While protected areas remain the only hope for the imperiled biota of the Malay Archipelago, this protection requires consideration of the sustenance needs and economic aspirations of the local people. Putting forward the views of all the stakeholders of protected areas - conservation practitioners and planners, local community members, NGO activists, government administrators, biologists, lawyers, policy and management analysts and anthropologists - this book fills a niche in the area of biodiversity, and is a highly valuable and original reference book for graduate students, scientists and managers, as well as government officials and transnational NGOs.

    • Diverse range of expertise from editors, and international line up of contributors - from world-renowned academic institutions and major conservation organizations, e.g. Wildlife Conservation Society and the Nature Conservancy
    • Fills a unique niche in the area of biodiversity, summarizing cooperative endeavours between government authorities and local communities, which will be used as models for other biodiversity hotspots
