Media reviews

"This is an extraordinary, virtually unique work [...] The tremendous amount of original, previously unpublished, firsthand information is remarkable."
– Peter H. Raven, Director, Missouri Botanical Garden

"An essential resource for anyone interested in tropical biology [...] It can be used both as an encyclopedia – a source of facts on specific organisms – and as a source of ideas and generalizations about tropical ecology."
– Alan P. Smith, Ecology
