About this book

The rainforest canopy is one of the richest ecosystems on Earth, a mixture of aerial plants, insects, frogs, birds and mammals, many of which never descend to the forest floor. In this highly illustrated book, the author explores this fascinating world, and the scientists who are studying it.

"a tour de force of scientific journalism, as well as the visual and literary expression of an experienced and deeply caring naturalist."
- from the Foreword by E O Wilson.
