Reviews

A much needed publication about the relevance of Biosphere Reserves as nature-based solutions that implement emerging and key concepts for our planetary challenges - such as governance and cultural practices for ecosystem management - in a continuous search for ecosystem resilience. - Angela Andrade, Commission on Ecosystem Management, International Union for the Conservation An excellent publication show-casing the role of UNESCO Biosphere Reserves as learning laboratories for sustainable development at a global level by linking cultural diversity to biological diversity for the well-being for humankind, including conflict prevention and management of biodiversity. - Shamila Nair-Bedouelle, Assistant Director-General for Natural Sciences, UNESCO A must-read for anyone interested in Biosphere Reserves - the first book ever with an international perspective on this innovative concept and its evolving applications to the practices and science of biodiversity conservation, climate change and sustainability. - Lisen Schultz, Research fellow at Stockholm Resilience Centre, Stockholm University, Sweden
