About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Portuguese

About 60% of the Brazilian population, or roughly 100 million people, live in the Atlantic Forest (Mata Atlântica in Portugese). This terrestrial biome and region extends along the Atlantic coast of Brazil, encompassing over 17 Brazilian States, from Rio Grande do Norte in the north to Rio Grande do Sul state in the south, and inland as far as Paraguay and the Misiones Province of Argentina. It passes through major urban centers such as São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. In presenting the mosaic of habitats and ecosystems that make up this biome, The Atlantic Forest: A History That Looks to the Future / Mata Atlântica: Uma História do Futuro highlights the importance of preservation, aimed at sustainability and possible forms of co-existence of urban areas and their ecological matrix. A contemporary reflection that sees the future.

Bilingual in English and Portuguese and containing about 150 images, the work also includes the period before the arrival of settlers to Brazil, the transformation with the arrival of the Royal Court and the institutionalization of science, until the moment of fragmentation of this biome, which still has one of the richest biodiversities in the world, with more than 15,700 plant species and more than 2,200 species of vertebrates.

Summary in Portugese:
Cerca de 60% da população brasileira, ou seja, aproximadamente 100 milhões de pessoas, vive na região da Mata Atlântica, ao longo de 17 estados brasileiros, do Ceará ao Rio Grande do Sul, passando por importantes centros urbanos como São Paulo e Rio de Janeiro. Ao apresentar o mosaico de habitats e ecossistemas que compõe esse bioma, o livro alerta para a importância da preservação, visando à sustentabilidade e às possíveis formas de coexistência de aglomerados urbanos e sua matriz ecológica. Uma reflexão contemporânea que mira o futuro.

Em edição bilíngue, com textos em português e inglês e cerca de 150 imagens, a obra também contempla o período anterior à chegada dos povos colonizadores ao Brasil, as transformações com a chegada da Corte Real e a institucionalização da ciência, até o momento de fragmentação do bioma, que ainda hoje conta com uma das mais ricas biodiversidades do mundo, comportando mais de 15.700 espécies de planta e mais de 2.200 espécies de vertebrados.
