About this book

Based on papers presented at an international conference in Belem, Brazil in January 1988. An important and stimulating collection.

This book is a rich mine of excellent reviews and new ideas and data. I recommend it to anyone interested in tropical rain forest ecology and the development issues confronting this troubled biome. -- David B. Clark, Ecology
