Abstract: "An examination of protected area management through agroforestry development assistance to local, resource-poor communities. Although almost the whole country lies within the tropics, Viet Nam stretches over 1600 km from the north to the south. The climate and plants vary from tropical in the southern lowlands to temperate in the northern highlands. Thus, Viet Nam's forests have 12000 higher vascular plant species of which more than 7000 have been described. Of these, some 2300 species have been used by Vietnamese people for food, medicine, animal fodder, wood, oil and other purposes."
