SNAPP: Forest sharing or sparing for conservation and communities in tropical timber landscapes

Principal Investigators:

Bronson W. Griscom, Mark Ashton, and Francis E. Putz

Humans now actively manage the majority of land on earth, and our footprint is found in nearly all remaining natural landscapes (Hooke et. al. 2012). It is no surprise that a debate about how to mix people and nature has emerged, dubbed “land sharing vs. sparing”, that asks this question: How do we achieve the greatest conservation outcomes in a landscape given demands for food, fiber, and fuel? Should we intensify production in one part of the landscape so that we may strictly protect (spare) the remainder? Or should we integrate (share) production... more
