Review

"The editors and authors have done a tremendous job in assembling a comprehensive volume on the past and present of the biological diversity, hydrology, conservation and sustainable management of the Tropics' montane cloud forests. This book provides us with a wealth of knowledge that underscores the urgency to save the world's tropical highland cloud forests." Maarten Kappelle, Adjunct Associate Professor in Geography of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville and Lead Scientist for The Nature Conservancy's Science Program in Latin America

"This book contains the most up-to-date synthesis of the scientific understanding of tropical montane cloud forests. It is global and long-term in scope and is authored by the top scientific minds working on the subject. It will be essential reading for those interested in a holistic understanding of an ecosystem type at the cross hairs of climate and global environmental change." Ariel E. Lugo, Director of the Institute of Tropical Forestry, Puerto Rico--US Department of Agriculture

"Representing a compilation of the currently available scientific knowledge by the most important cloud forest specialists of the world, this book provides conservationists and forest managers all the arguments and tools to convince policy-makers they should protect these forests. Use it!" Willem Ferwerda, Director of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) National Committee of The Netherlands

"This is an incredibly rich assemblage of work by leaders in an important field, and deserves to be on the shelves of all libraries of natural resource institutions. ... It is also an exceptionally good launch pad for all further work on cloud forests that remains to be done. ... I am very glad I shall have this book to hand as I attempt to conserve my forest for the future." Prof. Jeff Sayer (James Cook University, Australia), International Forestry Review

"this book provides a valuable platform on which to base future research, and certainly no one active in cloud forest research can afford to be without a copy." - Adrian Newton, Mountain Research and Development

"... an extraordinary compilation of individual studies that will be of value to all working on this precious ecosystem......many contributions provide extensive lists of references..." - David.L Hawksworth, Biodiversity and Conservation --This text refers to the Printed Access Code edition.
