This paper is a much abridged version of World Bank Environment Department Paper 75, “Biodiversity Conservation in the Context of Tropical Forest Management,” by the same authors. It is the first paper in the bank's Impact Studies Series, which addresses the broader questions of the positive and negative effects of human activities on biodiversity. A more complete set of data supporting the arguments herein are in the appendices and text of the World Bank paper, which can be accessed from http://www.worldbank.org/biodiversity.
