The author, drawing on her experiences at the Smithsonian Institution's Tropical Research Institute in Panama, describes tropical forests--their structure, how they differ from forests in the temperate zone, the threats to their survival. She examines in detail the work of biologists who have spent years studying the nesting habits of birds and iguanas, how bees use the perfume of orchids, how monkeys, frogs, and birds communicate, how insects defend themselves against predators. An absorbing and authoritative book on the astonishingly intricate relationships among the plants and animals of the tropical forest.
