Forest Canopies
Forest Canopies
2nd Edition

Margaret D. Lowman and H. Bruce Rinker, editors
The treetops of the world’s forests are where discovery and opportunity abound, but until recently they have been relatively inaccessible. This book represents an authoritative synthesis of data, anecdotes, case studies, observations, and recommendations from researchers and educators who have risked life and limb in their advocacy of the High Frontier. With innovative rope techniques, cranes, walkways, dirigibles, and towers, they finally gained access to the rich biodiversity that lives far above the forest floor and the emerging science of canopy ecology. In this new edition of Forest Canopies, nearly 60 scientists and educators from around the world look at the biodiversity, ecology, evolution, and conservation of forest canopy ecosystems.
