About this title

Synopsis:

Now available in a revised edition, this landmark volume takes readers deep inside the "living cathedral" of the forest interior and examines the forces that threaten the biome's survival. It presents an action plan for the concerned individual and the whole of humanity to implement before the potentially bleak consequences of tropical deforestation become unavoidable. Combining 300 stunning fullcolor photographs with comprehensive fact-filled text and extensively revised bibliography and tables, the book is destined to remain the leading reference on this vital issue. Among the topics covered are: What is a Tropical Rainforest?: Examines the vast array of species and life forms that comprise the rainforest; The Web of Life: Explains the dynamics of the rainforest, including pollination and seed dispersal and the food chain; Threats to the Forest: Details the contributing factors to rainforest destruction, including timber extraction, mining and pollution, and cattle raising; What Do We Lose?: Focuses on the effects of deforestation, such as the loss of biological diversity, atmospheric stability, and dwindling land, natural, and human resources; A Blueprint for Survival: Offers concrete plans for conservation, including habitat preservation, funding for rainforest projects, stabilizing the migrant cultivator, and wood production for the future; Reason for Hope: New to this edition, this chapter offers information on the future of tropical rainforests. "Thank you, Arnold Newman, for giving us this beautiful volume, for enhancing our understanding, for increasing our sense of wonder, for encouraging us to become fervently committed and involved in saving the forests of the world for our children and grandchildren." -Jane Goodall, Ph.D."
