IN THEIR POLICY FORUM, “GLOBALIZATION OF CONSERVAtion: A view from the South” (10 August, p. 755), J. P. Rodríguez et al. claim that international nongovernmental organizations (INGOs) promote conservation from the top down, through global biodiversity priority-setting, rather than from the bottom up, by supporting local groups or building local capacity in areas of high biological importance. They also liken INGOs to transnational corporations. We respectfully disagree with both assertions.
