New paperback edition of this book, in which experts on the four most thoroughly studied rainforests in Central and South America - Manaus, Brazil; Manu Park, Peru; Barro Colorado Island, Panama; and La Selva, Costa Rica - compare the flora, fauna, and ecological characteristics of these forests. The first such assemblage of reliable data to be published.
`Surely destined to be a classic of tropical forest science ... It should find a place on the bookshelves of all who concern themselves with tropical forests.' Norman Myers, Bioscience
