"Wrangham and Ross have done a service by producing a volume that makes the benefits explicit. This book is as much about strategies as it is about rewards; it is a ''how-to'' (and ''how-not-to'') guide for conducting research in tropical forests. It offers a statement of broader impacts for our research proposals and, more importantly, rebuts the skeptics who claim research in tropical Africa takes more than it gives."

This unique case study examines effects on habitat management, community relations, ecotourism and training. Whilst the focus has been the Kibale national park, the lessons learned from this project over the last 20 years will inspire researchers and conservationists to work together to promote biodiversity through field projects.
