This paper focuses on the role of economic factors inducing deforestation in Brazil and thereby threatening biodiversity, giving particular attention to the exploitation pattern of forest resources in Brazil. Some economic factors cannot be easily reverted since reversion would require long-term structural adjustments to alleviate social inequalities, to accomplish a satisfactory land tenure reform and to solve renumeration issues inhibiting human resource enhancement in governmental agencies. However, there is still room to introduce economic incentives in order to mitigate the current trend towards deforestation and biodiversity losses.
