About this book

Photographs by Alain Compost
Tropical rainforests, covering only 7% of the earth's land surface, are the world's oldest ecosystem and house over 50% of all plant and animal species. The Indonesian archipelago contains over 10% of the world's total rainforest area, housing over 400 species of tree, 500 different mammals, and 1500 bird species. This beautiful and lavishly illustrated book is a celebration of Indonesia's unique and diverse rainforests - their ecology, biodiversity, and inhabitants.
