IUCN's 5th World Parks Congress (2003) concluded that parks should not exist as unique islands, but need to be planned and managed as an integral part of the broader landscape. Ecological networks provide an operational model for conserving biodiversity that is based on ecological principles and allow a degree of human use of the landscape. This publication illustrates the development of several ecological networks around the world, demonstrating their benefits both for conservation and sustainable development.

'The author, and economist, displays great sensitivity to the environment, not only in understanding complex ecosystems but also as related to the teachings of Eastern religions and rural philosophers such as Aldo Leopold. . . . written with both clarity and an obvious wealth of experience. . . . This well organized book has concluding comments and references at the end of each chapter and an index at the end. This highly readable book shows with candour how humanity can reconcile its needs with those of other species.' - Roger T. Parrott, Environment 'Drawing on his long experience in Australasia, Clem Tisdell has presented a compelling case for integrating biodiversity conservation with economics, and demonstrating how this integration can work in practice. This is an important contribution to the literature, and should be of broad interest to all who are working on environmental issues in Asia.' - Jeffrey A. McNeeley, Chief Scientist, IUCN - the World Conservation Union This important book highlights the conflicts between economic growth and the conservation of nature in the context of sustainable development. It places particular emphasis on biological diversity and examines possible policies for resolving conflicts which arise from the contrasting goals of conserving the natural environment and economic growth.

This book illustrates the key role played by taxonomy in the conservation and sustainable utilisation of plant biodiversity. It is a tribute to the work of Professor Vernon Heywood who has done so much to highlight the importance of sound scholarship, training and collaboration for plant conservation. Divided into four parts, the book opens with an overview of the place of taxonomy in science and in implementing the Convention on Biological Diversity. Part 2 outlines the theoretical basis of taxonomy, how it is done and how it contributes to measuring diversity. The third part explains how taxonomy is used to establish conservation priorities and actions and the concluding part illustrates taxonomy in the practice and measurement of effective conservation action. With contributions from taxonomists and also the users of taxonomy, the volume will provide a balanced treatment, suitable for advanced students, researchers and conservation professionals.
