About this book

Revised edition of the book originally published in 1990, this fine book provides a readable introduction to the crucial role that rainforests play in the world's ecology. Newman describes the consequences of continued deforestation and presents ideas for saving rainforests. The bulk of the book is an illustrated survey of the plants and animal life.

Thank you, Arnold Newman, for giving us this beautiful volume, for enhancing our understanding, for increasing our sense of wonder, for encouraging us to become fervently committed and involved in saving the forests of the world for our children and grandchildren. -Jane Goodall, Ph.D.
