There are no places on earth more mysterious and complex than tropical rainforests. These wonders of biodiversity cover just six percent of the earth's surface, yet are home to over half of all identified animal and plant species and contain one fourth of the world's fresh water. Famed biologist E.O. Wilson said that walking into a rainforest is like "entering a treasure house."
With stunning photographs by the world's leading nature photographers – including new work by Tim Flach – and inspiring text by award-winning author Lewis Blackwell, Rainforest opens our minds to breathtaking beauty of this endangered natural world, with its verdant plant life and diverse animal species. Swooping from aerial to eye level perspectives, Rainforest captures the world's most fascinating ecosystem at all scales, from a vast sleeping forest cloaked in morning mist to the brilliant iridescent flicker of a butterfly's wing.
