About this book

Describes the mysteries of the treetops - their inhabitants, flowers and fruits, growth and mortality, patterns of diversity and plant and animal interactions. Chapters are organised chronologically, from the author's early days with ropes in Australia, via research by hot-air balloon in Africa, to building treetop walkways in the temperate forests of Massachusetts and the tropical rain forests of Belize.
