Critique: Review of the hardback: 'Bonell and Bruijnzeel completed a challenging and commendable achievement in organising these well-researched reviews on forests, water, and people of the humid tropics. The book will serve for many policy makers, managers, and scientists as a desk reference, and fit in alongside other classic publications of the Cambridge University Press International Hydrology Series. ? the book is a great resource, providing a collection of reviews on watershed management in tropical forests.' Hydrological Processes

Review of the hardback: '? a rich compendium of papers: 9 on hydrological process in undisturbed forests; 8 dealing with forest disturbance, conversion and recovery; and 8 describing methods for detecting and evaluating effects of land use change. Specialists in a wide range of fields ... will find contributions in their own field and in other fields with relevance to theirs.' European Tropical Forest Research Network News

Review of the hardback: '? it draws its contents from worldwide experiences and is organised by both broad and open-minded editors who are honestly putting together the best existing knowledge ?'. Agricultural and Forest Meteorology

Review of the hardback: 'Forests, Water and People in the Humid Tropics is a comprehensive review of topical knowledge on humid tropical forest hydrological functioning ? This is an impressive book. You get a real sense of the nature and breadth of the field, the importance of both empirical and conceptual approaches, the practical applications and the multidisciplinarity of managing those systems. ? there is a real 'take home message' to the book, which is the need of holistic approaches to tropical land and water management with a focus on local community involvement. ? excellent and very well-written ? there is something in Forests, Water and People in the Humid Tropics for everyone.' Progress in Physical Geography
