Penguatan Pendidikan Pro-Lingkungan Hidup di Sekolah-Sekolah Untuk Meningkatkan Kepedulian Generasi Muda Pada Lingkungan Hidup

Orang bijak adalah orang yang mampu memuliakan sampah. Memuliakan sampah berarti ia memilah sampah berdasarkan jenisnya, meletakkan sampah pada tempat sesuai dengan kategorinya, dan kemudian mengelola sampah dengan kreatif. Pengelolaan sampah itu bisa melalui Bank Sampah, menjadikan sampah sebagai materi prakarya di sekolah, atau bahan kerajinan daur ulang yang banyak dikelola masyarakat. Pendeknya, sampah adalah berkah dan bisa menjadi emas Buku persembahan penerbit Best Media (GalangPressGroup)

PENDIDIKAN LINGKUNGAN HIDUP

“Buku ini kembali mengajak kita kepada menelusuri konsep dan hakikat pendidikan lingkungan hidup yang hakiki yang disandingkan dengan pemahaman akan lingkungan yang utuh. Sebuah konsep pendidikan lingkungan hidup yang memang perlu ditanamkan kepada siapapun yang bergerak di bidang PLH. Di samping itu, Buku ini sangat relevan dengan kondisi saat ini.” Prof. Dr. Eri Berlian, MS (Ketua Program Studi S3 Ilmu Lingkungan) “Tema buku ini menarik bagi kalangan dosen dan pendidik, spesifik dan mampu menjawab tantangan akan minimnya buku pegangan pendidikan lingkungan hidup. Seharusnya memang perlu dikenalkan sebuah model pendidikan lingkungan hidup yang orisinil dan buku ini sangat pantas digunakan sebagai rujukan untuk hal tersebut. Buku ini sangat layak dan perlu bagi pendidik ataupun calon pendidik yang akan berkecimpung dengan dunia pendidikan lingkungan hidup.” Prof. Dr. Bedjo Sujanto, M.Pd (Rektor Universitas Negeri Jakarta tahun 2004-2013)

The Maya Tropical Forest

People, Parks, and Ancient Cities

The Maya Tropical Forest, which occupies the lowlands of southern Mexico, Guatemala, and Belize, is the closest rainforest to the United States and one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Western Hemisphere. It has been home to the Maya peoples for nearly four millennia, starting around 1800 BC. Ancient cities in the rainforest such as Palenque, Yaxchilan, Tikal, and Caracol draw thousands of tourists and scholars seeking to learn more about the prehistoric Maya. Their contemporary descendants, the modern Maya, utilize the forest's natural resources in village life and international trade, while striving to protect their homeland from deforestation and environmental degradation. Writing for both visitors and conservationists, James Nations tells the fascinating story of how ancient and modern Maya peoples have used and guarded the rich natural resources of the Maya Tropical Forest. He opens with a natural history that profiles the forest's significant animals and plants. Nations then describes the Maya peoples, biological preserves, and major archaeological sites in Mexico, Guatemala, and Belize. Drawing on more than twenty-five years of conservation work in the Maya Tropical Forest, Nations tells first-hand stories of the creation of national parks and other protected areas to safeguard the region's natural resources and archaeological heritage. He concludes with an expert assessment of the forest's future in which he calls for expanded archaeological tourism to create an ecologically sustainable economic base for the region.

Recovery of a tropical forest with maximum carbon content can take hundreds of
years (Montagnini and Nair 2004). Some tropical countries have recently started
programs of incentives to encourage tree plantation development to help offset C
emissions. Since 1966, Costa Rica has contributed payments for environmental
services (ES) such as promoting forest conservation, sustainable forest
management, and tree plantations through the assignment of differential

Tropical Forests of the Guiana Shield

Ancient Forests in a Modern World

The Guiana Shield is an ancient geological formation located in the northern part of South America, covering an area of one million square kilometres. Despite its hostile environment, it is home to many unusual and highly specialized plants and animals, which constitute a rich area of biodiversity. Chapters in this book include hydrology, nutrient cycling, forest phenology, insect-plant interactions, forest microclimate, plant distributions, forest dynamics and conservation and management of flora and fauna. It provides a comprehensive and detailed review of the ecology, biology and natural history of the forests of the area.

Changes and Disturbance in Tropical Rainforest in South-East Asia

Views on the dynamics of tropical forests are changing rapidly with the recognition that their environment is variable on the decadal to century scale. Fluctuating climatic conditions partly determine tropical forest structure, species composition and dynamics. Tropical communities are also highly contingent in space and time with respect to site and historical factors. Tropical forests have experienced to some degree this disturbance regime in the past, but climatologists are now predicting increasingly frequent extreme events in the new century. The combination of increasing deforestation and land-use conversion by man plus an increasingly variable environment means a situation that could be very difficult to manage.
