About this book

Leuser in northern Sumatra is a vast treasure house of biodiversity. It is home to some 4,000 species of plants, over 350 bird species, and a rich aquatic life. Some of the world's rarest mammals inhabit its forests, including tigers, elephants, orangutans, Sumatran rhinos, clouded leopards and siamangs. With stunning vistas and an unparalleled array of plant and animal life, Gunung Leuser National Park and its surroundings (collectively known as the Leuser Ecosystem) has become a magnet for scientists, amateur naturalists and nature tourists.
This book gives an in-depth picture of this unique park, one of the largest tropical rain forest reserves in the world, bringing together experts from around the world, most of whom have spent years researching aspects of the park's biodiversity. The book includes accounts of geology, vegetation and flora, and the way of life of the major animal species, as well as checklists of all the major animal groups.
