ECOLOGICAL GLOSSARY FOR PROTECTED AREA MANAGERS
Essentials of Protected Area Management in the Philippines (2000)
by Nick J. Ashton-Jones
The glossary has been designed as a companion to the NIPAP Guide to Understanding the Environment and is especially aimed at protected area stakeholders who are seeking to extend their knowledge of ecosystems. As such, the glossary defines a wide range of terms commonly found in ecological texts so that it also stands alone being useful to anyone who is reading about ecological and environmental issues in the Philippines.
The eighty-six definitions have arisen from a wide range of ecological experiences in the Philippines and elsewhere in South East Asia. They are expected to generate lively debate among members of the Philippines ecological community.
