504    Includes bibliographical references (pages 327-369) and 
505 0  The characteristics of the Amazon -- The origins of 
       regional cooperation in the Amazon -- The 1978 Amazon 
       Cooperation Treaty -- Regional and subregional 
       organizations -- Other legal instruments adopted by the 
       Amazon States inter se -- Multilateral treaties and global
       actors in the Amazon -- Positive incentives for protecting
       the Amazon -- The legal status of the Amazon : 
       implications for international cooperation. 
520    With a vast river network and rainforests extending over 
       eight South American countries, the Amazon plays a vital 
       role particularly in maintaining biodiversity and 
       terrestrial carbon storage. Due to its ecological 
       characteristics, the Amazon benefits not only those 
       countries but also the international community at large. 
       However, the Amazon forests are being rapidly cleared with
       a consequent loss of biodiversity and impact on global 
       climate. This book examines whether international law has 
       an impact on the preservation of the Amazon by inquiring 
       into the forms of cooperation that exist among the Amazon 
       countries, and between them and the international 
       community, and to what extent international cooperation 
       can help protect the Amazon. Given the role of this region
       in maintaining the balance of the global environment, the 
       book examines whether the Amazon should be granted a 
       special legal status and possible implications in terms of
       international cooperation.
