Summary

In Managing the Wild, botanist and tropical ecologist Charles Peters tells rich stories about indigenous forest management, which he accumulated over nearly four decades of fieldwork in Latin America, Africa, Asia, and Australasia. Through an engaging blend of natural history, ethnobotany, and personal anecdote, Peters aims to change the perception that local people exploit natural resources with no regard for the future.
