About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Portuguese

This work deals with the formation of pine forests since the emergence of the first ancestor of the Araucaria, 250 million years ago. It reveals the richness of the flora and fauna, shows the way of life of the first inhabitants of the forest, the Kaingang people, outlines the occupation of land by settlers, and details the commercial exploitation of timber, a determining factor in their near-extermination. Richly illustrated with current and historical photographs, the book also provides a comparison between the exploitation model of the Araucaria Forest and other Brazilian biomes, with a brief overview of the Cerrado, the Caatinga, seasonal forests, the Pantanal, the Atlantic Forest and the Amazon

Summary in Portuguese:
Esta obra aborda a formação dos pinheirais desde o surgimento do primeiro antepassado da araucária, há 250 milhões de anos. Revela a riqueza da flora e da fauna, mostra o modo de vida dos primeiros habitantes da floresta, os índios Kaingang, e delineia a ocupação do território pelos colonizadores, bem como a exploração comercial da madeira, fator determinante para o seu quase extermínio. Ricamente ilustrado com fotografias atuais e históricas, o livro também traz um comparativo entre o modelo de exploração da Floresta com Araucária e os demais biomas brasileiros, com um breve panorama do Cerrado, da Caatinga, da Floresta Estacional, do Pantanal, da Floresta Atlântica e da Amazônia
