The Rainforests

A Celebration

Book - 1992
Rate this:
This book is both a visual celebration of the world's rainforests and an impeccable scientific summary of how they operate. Put together by an impressive team of international experts and photographers, it captures the extraordinary beauty and complexity of the rainforests and at the same time contains the most up-to-date information about them. Each chapter begins with an overview, and then examines a strand in the intricate web of life of which the forests are composed: plants, insects, reptiles, birds, and mammals. A final chapter discusses the people who live in the forests and are witnessing the consequences of our disregard for their most fundamental principle: that you do not destroy the environment on which you depend.
