I would also like to acknowledge the researchassistance, intellectual input and ongoing interest of Daniel Vachon in the preparation of thisreport.My interest in World Heritage, and particularly the nature-culture paradigm that underscoresUNESCO’s World Heritage Convention, was initially fuelled by conversations with mycolleague Joseph Reser. I would like to take the opportunity here to thank Joe for our manystimulating exchanges.Particular thanks also go to my colleagues, Joan Bentrupperbäumer, Roger Wilkinson andDermot Smyth for their respective contributions in the form of suggested reading material,photographic images of World Heritage sites visited in the course of this study, and coffeeshop chats.Last, but not least, I would like to acknowledge the invaluable editorial input of Birgit Kuehnand Shannon Hogan, members of the ‘Communications Program’ at the Rainforest CRC.
