A major revision, which shows the importance of diversity in the rain forest. Tropical rain forest trees and plants are covered particularly well, and the text has been significantly expanded to include the surge of new zoological literature available. Major revisions have also taken place in the sections on quaternary studies, fire, nutrient-cycling, gap-formation and its relationships to animal biology, epiphytes, lianes, bryophytes, plant and animal cycles, herbivory, seed dispersal, pollination and the sections dealing with anthropological issues.
