About this book

Comprehensive description and analysis of the plant and animal communities of the tropical rain forest at El Verde, Puerto Rico. Building on more than a decade of field research, the contributors weave the complex strands of information about the energy within the forest into a powerful tool for understanding the community dynamics of the food web. Moreover, the data within is applicable to all rain forests and given the continued destruction of rain forests the world over, this book is an essential text for conservationists planning action plans as it provides great detail on the dynamics of the very communities at risk.
