About this book

Language: Spanish

Follow two scientists as they spend a night in the Everglades collecting water samples, photographing wildlife, and sloshing through marshes in an attempt to understand this mysterious ecosystem. Part of a long-term effort to return the Everglades to a natural state after a century of development, the scientists try to figure out what the "river of grass" was like prior to human settlement. Along the way, they deal with razor-sharp sawgrass and alligators and turtles and are even surprised by the sudden presence of what is known in the Everglades as a "frog gigger" – one who hunts and collects frogs for food!

Summary in Spanish:
Sigue a dos científicos que pasan una noche en los Everglades recogiendo muestras de agua, fotografiando la vida silvestre y chapoteando a través de pantanos en un intento por comprender este ecosistema misterioso. Parte de un esfuerzo a largo plazo para devolver los Everglades a un estado natural después de un siglo de desarrollo, los científicos intentan averiguar lo que era el "Río de hierba" antes de los asentamientos humanos. En el camino, los científicos son sometidos a la nítida hierba de serrucho ("sawgrass"), a aligatores y tortugas y aún son sorprendidos por la repentina presencia de lo que se denomina en los Everglades un "gigger de rana" – ¡que caza y recopila las ranas para alimento!
