Floods of Fortune: Ecology and Economy Along the Amazon Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As the depredation of the planet's greatest storehouse of biodiversity — the Amazon region — continues apace, it is vitally important to understand the implications of the immense devastation the area has undergone. Describing the stunning diversity of plant and animal life found in and along the rivers, and showing how this wealth is being plundered, Floods of Fortune offers the first holistic view of the conservation drama unfolding in the Amazonian floodplain. Enriched with nearly one hundred beautiful and arresting color photographs as well as an investigation of the cultural history of the region's human habitation, the book helps readers comprehend the complex environmental and social problems associated with Amazonian development and offers solutions that reconcile development with conservation.
