This book presents advanced in-depth information regarding tropical forests. The surprisingly rich and abundant biodiversity of tropical forests is declining at a fast rate. This has led to serious changes in important biogeochemical cycles of nitrogen, carbon, phosphorus, etc. and has resulted in an alteration in the global climate and pure natural ecosystems. This book broadly defines Tropical Forests in light of the following major aspects: tropical forest synthesis, synergy and structure; effect of anthropogenic pressure; tropical forest protection and process; tropical forest fragmentation; remote sensing and geographic information system. Advanced synthesis, descriptive recent reviews, latest experiences/experiments contributed by veteran scientists from across the globe, and several original data-rich researches have been included in this book. The aim of this book is to help in educating, generating knowledge, and understanding the role of "Tropical Forests" for the very survival of humans, variety of biota, and climate change across the planet. This book will serve as a valuable source of reference for ecologists, students, forest managers, scientists, and population and conservation biologists.
