'This book, written for a broad audience, is the first comprehensive introduction to the issues surrounding the health of people living in and around forests, particularly in Asia, South America and Africa.... a vital addition to the knowledge base of all professionals, academics and students working on forests, natural resources management, health and development world-wide' - Bois & Forets des Tropiques
'Human Health and Forests represents an ambitious attempt to shed some multidisciplinary light on an issue of significant human-environmental importance. Written by an eclectic mix of ethno- ecologists, botanists, physicians, anthropologist, virologists, and many others, this collection synthesizes what is known, and what needs to be known, about the linkages between tropical forest ecology, culture, health, and policy.' - Robert Voeks, Economic Botany
'Undergraduate students should have little difficulty grasping the content, and economic botanists and ethno botanists will find much of value in Human Health and Forests.'- Robert Voeks, Economic Botany
This book, written for a broad audience, is the first comprehensive introduction to the issues surrounding the health of people living in and around forests, particularly in Asia, South America and Africa. Part I is a set of synthesis chapters, addressing policy, public health, environmental conservation, and ecological perspectives on health and forests including women and child health, medicinal plants and viral diseases such as Ebola, SARS and Nipah Encephalitis. Part II takes a multi-lens approach to lead the reader to a more concrete and holistic understanding using case studies from around the world that cover issues as important as the links between HIV/AIDS and the forest sector, and between diet and health.Part III looks at the specific challenges to health care delivery in forested areas, including remoteness and the integration of traditional medicine with modern health care. Generous use of boxes with specific examples add layers of depth to the analyses, and the book concludes with a synthesis designed for use by practitioners and policy makers to work with forest dwellers to improve their health and their ecosystems.This title presents the first comprehensive examination of the vital links between human health and forests, emphasizing on the ground practice and policy measures for professionals.It is a new title in the "People and Plants International Series", authored by world leaders in the field. It includes coverage of a range of issues from forests as reservoirs for disease such as Ebola to the links between health and forest conservation with case studies from Asia, Africa and South America. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.
