Management and conservation of NWFP resources

Export citation

In the late 1980s, NWFPs were presented as a possible alternative to deforestation and other activities that convert forest land, such as timber extraction, agriculture or plantations (Falconer, 1990; Plotkin and Famolare, 1992). Since some NWFPs have considerable market value, the premise was that the long-term gains derived from the sustainable harvesting of these products could exceed the short-term gains from the conversion of forests or individual trees to other uses (Peters et al., 1989; Godoy and Bawa, 1993).
