About this book

Naturalist and photographer John Feltwell has travelled to Central and South America to bring you some of the highlights of its flora and fauna. From jaguars and tapirs to amazing birds and sparkling butterflies, John has captured the marvels of the rainforest from the forest floor to the rainforest canopy.

There are historical accounts of how the rainforest was explored and how the people who now populate the Amazon have integrated with nature, their trees, herbs and flowers. The mammals, fish and fruits of the forests are also covered.

In this changing, and better informed world, there are chapters on biodiversity and global warming that set the parameters and explain the controversies for you to take a measured view of the state of affairs.

It is hoped that this book will serve as an inspiration into the fascinating world of rainforests for those people who will never have a chance to visit. The book is also for those who are thinking of visiting the tropical rainforests of Latin America.
