Life Above the Jungle Floor: A Biologist Explores a Strange and Hidden Treetop World Reviews
Great info about life in the canopy of a Costa Rican rainforest. Writen by the first scientist pioneer of tree climbing canopy research. Has lots of scientific lingo which not everyone will enjoy/understand.
A fascinating book about life in the jungle canopy, the author's adventures in Costa Rica, and some wonderful photographs of rarely seen plants and animals. A little spoiled by a preachy ending, but a great chapter about prehistoric jungles. Really a fun book that I think most would enjoy.
I loved the majority of this book.... the parts with actual research notes. the end was a let down. why write the book in a wondering tone only to conclude by saying its all going to be ruined and that we as a species are unfit to preserve our home? could have been done much better, especially if the writer was looking to ignite new minds into environmental activists. calling people monkeys and telling them they can only hope to destroy isn't exactly a call to arms.
