About this book

Provides an overview of the main findings from this biodiversity research station in French Guiana. Focuses on plant communities and evolutionary ecology, frugivory and seed dispersal, and forest dynamics and recruitment. The appendices give checklists of plants, birds, mammals, herpetofauna and fishes found in the area.
