LIFE ABOVE THE JUNGLE FLOOR: A Biologist Explores a Strange and Hidden Treetop World.
Donald Perry. Simon & Schuster Inc.,
1986. 170 pages.

Life Above the Jungle Floor weaves adventure, ecology, natural history, geology and evolution into an enjoyable account of life in a section of Costa Rican jungle. With vivid detail, the reader meets the myriad life forms of the forest canopy, a part of the jungle that few people have ever seen closeup. Several accounts of bats and first-hand observations of their vital role in the rain forest are woven into the story. This is a very personal account, but the author draws on many areas of science to give meaning and depth to the many details he observes.
