Two new books on indigenous peoples and conservation have been added to naturalist Michael Chinery's exciting series Secrets of the Rainforest. Each colorful book shows us the wonderful array of plants and animals that live in the lush wildernesses of the world's tropical rainforests. Acting as the earth's lungs, the rainforests are of vital importance to the planet and to the many indigenous peoples who have traditionally lived in harmony with their lush surroundings. Children will learn how conservationists are struggling to preserve these last remaining wildernesses for future generations.In its rainforest home, the sloth can spend its whole day chewing leaves and moving so rarely that plants actually grow on its fur. From giant trees with buttress roots to 'air plants' that bloom suspended from trees, Plants and Planteaters describes the flowers, fruits and seeds of the rainforest that sustain this ecosystem's many fascinating insects, birds, monkeys, and mammals.Topics Include:
-- food from the forest
-- climbers and perchers
-- beautiful butterflies
-- feathered pollinators
-- feathered fruit-eaters
-- hanging in the trees
-- browsers big and small
-- forest acrobats
