This book considers three essential questions for understanding the ecology of tropical forests: How do they stay green with their abundance of herbivores? Why do they have such a diversity of plants and animals? And what role does mutualism play in the ecology of tropical forests? Beautifully written and abundantly illustrated, Tropical Forest Ecology will appeal to a wide variety of scientists in the fields of evolution, tropical biology, botany, zoology, and natural history.
