Rethinking conservation of tropical forests: perils in parks
According to some conservationists, large, pristine, uninhabited parks are the defining criterion of success in conserving tropical forests. They believe that removal of people from tropical forests is an essential step in the creation of successful parks and in the conservation of nature in the tropics. This approach can lead to undesirable consequences, however. In Amazonia and elsewhere, rural people are defending far bigger areas of tropical forest from unfettered deforestation and logging than are parks, thereby conserving the ecological services provided by these forests and the majority of their component plant and animal species.
