Description

The biodiversity of Southeast Asia is gravely imperilled by massive habitat modifications, forest fires and the overexploitation of wildlife. This book contains the first comprehensive determination of the current state of the region's terrestrial biotas and highlights the primary drivers responsible for the grave threat to its unique and rich biodiversity. Although the looming biodiversity disaster demands tangible actions, it will continue to be constrained by such socioeconomic variables as rampant poverty and lack of infrastructure. Any realistic solution should involve a shared multi-pronged strategy--political, socioeconomic and scientific.
