The Great Apes-the road ahead. A GLOBIO perspective on the impacts of infrastructural development on The Great Apes

UNEP World Conservation Monitoring Centre (UNEP-WCMC) (2002)

This report assesses the impact of infrastructural development on great ape populations, using the GLOBIO modelling approach. GLOBIO is a multivariate spatial model, which estimates the extent of land area with reduced abundance and diversity of living organisms, as a result of infrastructural development. The model can also be used to develop scenarios of possible future impacts, based on the current rates of infrastructural development.
