Abstract

We would like to acknowledge the many individuals who assisted in the completion of this sourcebook. Jamie Pittock, Gordon Orians, Curt Freese, and George Powell helped to shape the focus of this document with their important reviews of drafts. Representatives from WWF-Peru and WWF-Brazil permitted us to use the preliminary results of the Amazon River and Flooded Forests assessment to illustrate a suggested approach, and GIS specialists from the Conservation Science Program provided additional maps as well as information on GIS and satellite imagery. Numerous authors and publishers gave permission for the use of excerpts, which enrich this sourcebook immeasurably. This sourcebook is modeled on a prior volume about terrestrial ecoregions and borrows many ideas from it. Many people throughout the WWF network provided encouragement for this sourcebook, and we particularly want to thank Diane Wood, Judy Oglethorpe, and David Sandalow. We are especially thankful to Kimberley Marchant, who helped guide this volume to production. WWF gratefully acknowledges USAID for its support of this publication. WWF’s mission is to stop the degradation of the planet's natural environment and to build a future in which humans live in harmony with nature by: ■ conserving the world's biological diversity ■ ensuring that the use of renewable natural resources is sustainabl
