8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on December 8, 1998
Format: Paperback
Topical Forest Remnants edited by William F. Laurance and Richard O. Bierregaard Jr. discusses the importance of studying rainforest fragments. Each section of the book deals with a different component to this problem. This book is very interesting because it deals with an issue in tropical forests often overlooked by many. It is a series of different scientific studies that are accessible to the educated layperson. This book is a must for anyone interested in the tropical rainforests. Some knowledge of tropical rainforest ecology and destruction is helpful. The book presents general studies dealing with issues that are universal to tropical rainforests and highly specific studies dealing with a particular species in a particular region. Overall this book provides a great deal of information about tropical rainforest fragments. This book is not for someone looking for a little information about the subject. But, it is easy to choose what is of the most interest, because each chapter is a different study, they are independent of one another. There are some unanswered questions, especially concerning the current reserve progress. The book has many strong points with a few sections that may leave important concerns out. This book provides a comprehensive look into an area of tropical rainforest study often overlooked.

Tropical Forest Remnants edited by William F. Laurance and Richard O. Bierregaard Jr. discusses the importance of studying rainforest fragments. Each section of the book deals with a different component to this problem. This book is very interesting because it deals with an issue in tropical forests often overlooked by many. It is a series of different scientific studies that are accessible to the educated layperson. This book is a must for anyone interested in the tropical rainforests. Some knowledge of tropical rainforest ecology and destruction is helpful. The book presents general studies dealing with issues that are universal to tropical rainforests and highly specific studies dealing with a particular species in a particular region. The first section is an introduction, clarifying the importance of studying tropical rainforests and the importance of studying fragmentation of these areas. It discuss the micro and macro economic factors of fragmentation, which offers a range of impacts from the local level to the global level. One draw back of this section is that only the negatives of shifting cultivation are discussed. Though shifting cultivation causes fragmentation, it can be (and has been in the past) sustainable if done using the proper techniques. Edge effects are discusses in the second section of the book, which has two chapters that look at Australia and two chapters that look at Amazonia. Two chapters describe about microclimates of the regions (one about Australia and one about Amazonia). These were the most interesting chapters because they allow the reader to compare the regions. The reader is able to bring in prior knowledge of tropical forests and add it to the information form these two chapters to make an assessment.Read more ›
