Publisher Comments:

ALFONSO ALONSO is a conservation biologist and Director of the Field Programs at the Center for Conservation Education and Sustainability of the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute.

FRANCISCO DALLMEIER has been a conservation biologist with the Smithsonian Institution since 1986.  He is the Director of the Center for Conservation Education and Sustainability of the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute. He has developed programs associated to biodiversity research, monitoring and conservation in Latin America and Africa.

GRACE P. SERVAT is an associate researcher with the Center for Conservation Education and Sustainability of the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute. She has extensive experience doing ecological research in the Andes and Amazon systems.

Synopsis:

The book compiles case studies regarding the biodiversity research and monitoring program of Andean species and habitats carefully chosen as indicators to assess the short- and long-term effects of a linear disturbance: the PERU LNG pipeline. Set in a scientifically unexplored region of the Andes, Monitoring Biodiversity clearly articulates the Smithsonian-led conceptual framework for the implementation in the field by scientists. It addresses scientific and conservation questions addressed by the research protocols, the experimental design, and data gathering. Moreover, the book covers a gap on how to integrate biodiversity research, monitoring, and conservation into sustainable development projects of national and international interest.

About the Author

ALFONSO ALONSO is the Managing Director of the Center for Conservation Education and Sustainability at the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute where he focuses on sustainable development, mitigation of impacts of development on biodiversity, and integration of science and biodiversity research with resource extraction operations.

FRANCISCO DALLMEIER was born in Caracas, Venezuela, where at an early age he discovered a life-long passion for living creatures. His interest in biology carried him to the Smithsonian's Monitoring and Assessment of Biodiversity Program, which he has directed since 1986 and now consists of a network of more than 300 research plots throughout North America, Latin America, Asia, and Africa.
