Trees and trade-offs: Perceptions of eucalyptus and native trees in Ecuadorian highland communities
MetadataShow full item record
This eighth chapter examines historic and current processes for forest management in the Ecuadorian highlands.

This has created tensions between agroforestry uses of the land and conservation of indigenous biodiversity and traditional values of the forest landscape.
