essionals, and are actively engaged in ongoing conservation efforts in the region. In 2001 Laurance led an effort to project the future condition of forests in Brazilian Amazonia, which led to widespread international alarm about planned road-building projects for the region.

"Our work would not have been possible without close collaboration with scientists and government officials in Brazil, across Latin America and in other countries," said Lovejoy.

The project and affiliated researchers, students, and visiting scientists have produced over 520 technical and popular publicationsmany of which were authored or co-authored by Laurance and Lovejoyas well as 55 doctoral dissertations, and 63 masters theses. Among these are more than twenty articles published in the leading journals Science and Nature, and eight major edited books, including such seminal works as Tropical Forest Remnants by William Laurance and Richard Bierregaard, Lessons from Amazonia by Richard Bierregaard, Thomas Lovejoy, and others, Climate Change and Biodiversity by Thomas Lovejoy and Lee Hannah, and Emerging Threats to Tropical Forests by William Laurance and Carlos Peres.

Finally, Lovejoy and Laurance have initiated and promoted some of the most important and creative conservation initiatives in Amazonia and elsewhere in the tropics, such as the debt-for-nature swaps promoted by Lovejoy, which have become models for tropical forest management and international conservation programs across the planet.
