Riches of the forest: Food, spices, crafts and resins of Asia

The richness of Asia?s forests is reflected in the manifold products derived from these forests for human use. To serve as a first introduction to this plethora of products is the primary objective of the book at hand. The report, that are woven around forest products, is covering the following issues: the key role which non-timber forest products (NTFPs) play in forest dependent communities; the organisation of the trade and benefit sharing through the trade chain; the sustainable (or unsustainable) management of resources and the link with forest conservation.
