Abstract:     
This article (produced following the December 2007 Study Space workshop in Panama City, Panama) examines the status of the so-called "reverted areas" in Panama, meaning the lands that reverted to the Panamanian nation when it assumed control over the Panama Canal. The reverted areas are biological hot spots and until were relatively untouched while under US military control. New development pressures threaten their biological and environmental integrity, however. The article therefore looks at international and domestic legal instruments that might be used to assure their long-term biological integrity and environmental health.
