    The Amazon forest greatly influences the global climate and may be coming under increasing threat due to climate change. This report explores the relationship between the Amazon, climate, and the changes in this relationship that are underway as a result of forest destruction and the release of heat-trapping gases into the atmosphere. The paper seeks to interpret the best information available to determine how close we are to a point of no return for a major forest “dieback” in the Amazon, and to identify some steps that might be taken to counter this process.

    Los autores se preguntan por el aporte real de los biocombustibles a la solución de los problemas ambientales. Después de analizar las actuales formas de producción en Brasil, sostienen que la expansión de éstos presionará indirectamente hacia la deforestación, contribuyendo así aún más al calentamiento global. Señalan lo falaz del discurso que justifica la expansión de los biocombustibles por su aporte a la generación de empleo.

    Las aves rapaces constituyen un grupo potencialmente sensible a la pérdida y la fragmentación de su ambiente natural debido a sus requerimientos de hábitat extensos y a su baja densidad poblacional. Sin embargo, las rapaces parecen responder de modo diferente a la pérdida del hábitat en ecosistemas templados (donde se observan pocos efectos) y en selvas tropicales y subtropicales (con efectos más marcados). El objetivo de este trabajo es estudiar la respuesta de un grupo de aves rapaces diurnas a la pérdida y la fragmentación de la Selva Paranaense.

    Governments in many countries are decentralising to give more control over decision making and budgets to local administrations. One expectation of this change is that local governments will more effectively and efficiently respond to the poorest citizens in their jurisdictions. Decentralisation is especially significant to forest communities, which have historically benefited little from government services and poverty reduction programmes because of their physical isolation and social marginalisation.
