Tropical Environments presents a comprehensive introduction to the complex systems of the tropics. Covering a broad, cross-regional range of humid through to semi-arid tropical climate zones, the book features a wealth of case studies drawn from throughout the tropical world. The authors tackle the major problems within the tropics, from complex biological interactions and soil nutrient deficiencies, offering a balanced integration of biophysical and human management issues.


"Refreshingly..this highly interdisciplinary text weaves together a collection of some of the most critical issues in the ecology and conservation of tropical ecosystems." Carlos A Peres Trends in Ecology and Evolution June 1998
