Wildlife: a forgotten and threatened resource

July 27, 2016

Presentation by Robert Nasi, Director of the CGIAR Research Program on Forests, Trees and Agroforestry, et al. at the Annual Meeting of the Association for Tropical Biology and Conservation in Montpellier, France, 19-23 June 2016.

The harvest of forest wildlife provides invaluable benefits to local people, but understanding of such practices remains fragmentary. With global attention drawn to the issue of declining biodiversity, this talk assesses the consequences, both for ecosystems and local livelihoods, of the loss of important forest resources, and alternative management options.
