TROPICAL AND SUBTROPICAL BIODIVERSITY IN THE AREAS ISLAND: FOR SUSTAINABLE BIODIVERSITY MANAGEMENT IN OVERSEAS EUROPE

Tropical islands are characterized by an abundant but fragile biodiversity. It is considered that sustainable development on tropical islands including the preservation of biodiversity can be accomplished only taking advantage of the skills of local communities. A better knowledge of interactions between ecosystems' dynamics and human activities, as well as the establishment of collaborative inter-island networks at different geographic, institutional and thematic scales is essential to generate development, which concomitantly preserves the rich insular biodiversity.
