The Rain Forests of Home brings together a diverse array of thinkers - conservationists, community organizers, botanists, anthropologists, zoologists, Native Americans, ecologists, and others - to present a multilayered, multidimensional portrait of the coastal temperate rain forest and its people. Joining natural and social science perspectives, the book provides readers with a valuable understanding of the region's natural and human history, along with a vision of its future and strategies for realising that vision. The Rain Forests of Home offers for the first time a unified description of the characteristics, history, culture, economy, and ecology of the coastal temperate rain forest. It is essential reading for anyone who lives in or cares about the region.Biografía del autor:
