About this book

The only book available that offers a survey of the flora and fauna of the region, making it particularly interesting for researchers in biodiversity and the biogeography of the Neotropical Region. It stands out among the few books on this vast area of seasonally flooded plains in surveying all major taxa of plants and animals, providing information available in myriad short publications in journals, many of which are very hard to obtain.
