These regions and areas are also primary targets for tourist developments. It is rather obvious that, for use in the built environment, a definition of the tropics based on broad ‘geographical’ terms of reference is unsatisfactory. The required data inputs are different from variations in temperature and precipitation affecting vegetation. We build to filter and modify various geographical impacts, and the climatic ones in particular. Thus, the definition should refer to the required response by the building to achieve the comfort of its occupants.

Such sharp differences in climatic conditions over very short distances can often be found in areas where mountains are parallel to the coast – even if their height is modest they produce a most profound influence on annual rainfall patterns. It is suggested that, in order to achieve better accuracy, the mesoclimate or locality climate characteristics, which is the data set usually accessed for design purposes, be modified by two factors applied to every building site: the ‘hill factor’ and the ‘sea factor’ 16 Eco-resorts: Planning and Design for the Tropics (though ‘vegetation factor’ can also be considered).

An important contribution to the overall fragility of these ecosystems is brought about by their uniqueness. An important consideration is the origin of tropical biodiversity: some experts believe that an uninterrupted and stable 40 million years of evolution has been the reason behind a much higher density of different species co-existing in the tropical biomes, while others tend to put it down to Pleistocene refuges (shelters) surviving independently within the present-day rainforests. Both arguments add to validity of conservation efforts.
