Recognising the diversity of opinion as to the nature and scale of biodiversity-poverty links and the most appropriate mechanisms that can help to maximise them, this book is intended to explore the current state of knowledge on different aspects of this relationship. The book is based on a symposium held in April 2010 at the Zoological Society of London that brought together leading experts to discuss the nature of the links between biodiversity and poverty in different ecological contexts and for different groups of poor people.
