About this book

Deals with both the biological and the human aspects of the tropical rain forest and describes how scientific research is conducted in these immensely high forests. Climate and soil, as basic factors in the ecology of the rain forest, are discussed, and the other characteristics of a rain forest are also carefully considered: their enormous variety of species, the woody character of those species and consequent problems of regeneration, and the intricate relationships which have evolved between plants and animals.
