"Rainforest's" remarkable and evocative text is expertly written by a leading authority at Fauna & Flora International. Illustrated throughout with spectacular photographs, this book celebrates the diversity and beauty of the wealth of wildlife still remaining in this extraordinary and complex habitat. "Rainforest" describes and illustrates the major rainforests of the world, from the secret forests and exotic mammals of Madagascar to the multi-coloured bird and butterfly life of Central America. This superb exploration around the world brings to life the natural splendour of the world's rich and diverse rainforest life. The precarious paradise of the Amazon, with more plant and animal species than anywhere else on Earth, is covered in depth, as are Indonesia and the Philippines, which are home to a spectacular diversity of wildlife. At the dawn of a new century, with over half of the world's living species found almost exclusively within the rainforest canopy, this unique and sumptuous book brings to life this precious habitat for wildlife enthusiasts and eco-travellers alike.
