|Commercialization of Non-Timber Forest Products in Amazonia (NRI, 1993, 26 p.)|
Production and export of NTFPs in Brazilian Amazonia
The tables below are taken from Lescure and de Castro's classic study Extractivism in Central Amazonia: Overview of Economic and Botanical Aspects (a paper given at the UNESCO/UFRO/FAU conference workshop on the Management and Conservation of Humid Tropical Forest Ecosystem, Cayenne 10-19 March 1992).
The figures presented may differ from those given in the text tables. This is due to the different sources but the authors feel it worthwhile to reproduce both sets of data.
