Editorial Reviews

For centuries, the Várzea has been an important area for resource extraction, agriculture, and settlement. Additionally, many areas of the floodplains are crucial habitats for the reproduction of numerous species and others are home to populations of important and severely threatened endemics. The annual floods that make these lands agriculturally desirable also make them difficult to exploit by modern agricultural methods. This book covers five of today's most pressing issues facing the Várzea: fish and fisheries; forests and forestry; conservation; soils and river dynamics; and land resources management. The different sections highlight the conflict between conservation and development in this region by discussing the various approaches that are being proposed and implemented for both conserving the Várzea's valuable resources and attempting to enhance the social and economic needs of floodplain farmers, fishers, and forest managers.
