I am considering adding a section on the Monteverde Cloud Forest or the Gandoca Manzanillo Reserve. Please let me know if this is too long, too short, too vague...
Preliminary list of resources:
Echeverria, J.; Hanrahan, M.; Solorzano, R. Valuation of non-priced amenities provided by the biological resources within the Monteverde Cloud Forest Preserve, Costa Rica. Ecological Economics 13(1995), pp43-52.
Tripoli, S. Costa Rica saves a high dry forest. Christian Science Monitor. January 9, 1989; pp12-13.
Tye, L. Saving our planet: as stakes rise, plans emerge for preserving the forests. Boston Globe. April 10, 1989; pp1+.
In addition, I have ordered (and should be receiving soon!) a map of the Costa Rica National Parks.
I think that's all for now!
