> Biological Diversity: Balancing Interests Through Adaptive Collaborative Management addresses one of the most critical conservation challenges of our day -- how to balance local, national, and global interests in preserving the earth's biological diversity with competing interests in the use and exploitation of these natural resources. This pathbreaking book examines the potential of adaptive collaborative management -- the combination of science and participatory governance-- in managing the competing demands on protected for biodiversity conservation, local livelihood support, and broader-based regional development. It clarifies ACM's emerging characteristics and assesses its suitability for a variety of protected area situations.
