Seabird knowledge is described as a frontier science pdf. All too often there is insufiicient expertise to manage projects in the field. There are other bottlenecks slowing down the progress of tfap. Despite the new approach to integrating conservation and development outlined on pages 178-179, and the explicit adoption of this approach in the tfap, too many of the projects being designed are very traditional in their approach. They tend to compartmentalize logging, agriculture and conservation and keep them separate, but these are exactly the barriers that have led to disaster in the past LIFE Magazine - August 9, 1943. These species are found exclusively in pristine and undisturbed streams that flow through these nature reserves, and are found nowhere else in the world.

No engineering and technological solutions can be sought for stabilizing these areas. Even if we negate all benefits of mangroves as forests, their value as "protector of shore-line" is enough to convince us for conserving them.

Although soil chemistry was considered, a slightly greater weight was given to physical properties of the soil (e.g., soil depth, texture, stoniness, waterlogging) that cannot be easily enhanced by agricultural inputs Why Save the Rain Forest?. Up to one-third of the trees in semi-evergreen forest may be deciduous, but because each species sheds its leaves at its own time, there is no clear season of leaf-fall LIFE (MAGAZINE), VOL. 51, NO. 21, NOVEMBER 24, 1961.
