Forest concessions in the Maya Biosphere Reserve, Guatemala: A decade later

Extremely useful and well organized review of ten years of experience with community based natural forest management in the Maya Biosphere Reserve of Guatemala. Covers all of the elements of NWP without ever citing the model. Excellent read, well organized and useful graphics help to make point clear.
