Combining stunning color photography with a text that focuses on ecology and conservation, this volume explores the rain forests of Costa Rica and provides detailed accounts of the diverse range of flora and fauna. Forsyth, an award- winning biologist and nature writer, has teamed with a noted pair of photographers to provide an intimate account of the danger and beauty that exists in these environments. The adaptive coloration of prey and predators, chemical defenses used by insects, plant and animal co-evolution and the origins of tropical variety are also discussed. Oversize: 11.25x10.5".
