The authors also tell the success story of Area de Conservacion Guanacaste, where the long-term work of Janzen and Hallwachs, a team of caterpillar collectors, and the participation of neighboring farming communities has deepened understanding of Costa Rica's Lepidoptera and has brought about advances in restoration ecology of tropical habitats, biodiversity prospecting, biotechnology, and ecotourism development.

Pollinator-mediated reproductive isolation among dioecious fig species (Ficus, Moraceae) Discover Ironstone Vineyards. As long ago as 1917, naturalist William Beebe declared that "another continent of life remains to be discovered, not upon the Earth, but one to two hundred feet above it, extending over thousands of square miles." True exploration of this habitat only began in the 1980s, when scientists developed methods to reach the canopy, such as firing ropes into the trees using crossbows If I Ran the Rainforest (Cat in the Hat's Learning Library). A large portion of the rainfall in the Yucatán seeps into its aquifers; there are virtually no rivers to carry rainwater to the ocean. The states of Chiapas and Tabasco, where rainfall is the heaviest, account for about a quarter of Mexico’s aquifer resource. The next largest sources are the Balsas and Lerma–Santiago basins but each holds less than a tenth of the national total. Overexploited aquifers and areas of salinization (Fig 6-7 of Geo-Mexico; all rights reserved) According to the National Water Commission, 104 of the country’s 653 identified aquifers are overexploited in that more water is withdrawn each year than is naturally replaced NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE; VOLUME XXXVII, NUMBER 2; FEBRUARY, 1920. We now need to add the third, essential but still missing component: prioritizing the protection of intact primary forests in all major forest types – boreal, temperate, and tropical Forests and Food: Addressing Hunger and Nutrition Across Sustainable Landscapes.

Actually the concern should not be about losing a few plants and animals; mankind stands to lose much more. By destroying the tropical forests, we risk our own quality of life, gamble with the stability of climate and local weather, threaten the existence of other species, and undermine the valuable services provided by biological diversity Growth and Water Use of Forest Plantations.

Fires started by farmers practicing shifting cultivation raged out of control and were spread by the underlying coal and peat seams; they swept through forests that had already been logged, and damaged the edges of primary forest.

About 20 years ago, coastal nations declared their ownership of the ocean and its resources to a distance of 320 kilometres from their shores RAINFOREST ANIMALS-TEL (Random House Tell Me About Books).

Borneo lowland rainforest is often referred to as the dipterocarp rainforest, emphasizing its uniqueness in hosting the biggest number of species of dipterocarp trees in the world. By World Wildlife Fund's estimates, Borneo has 267 species of dipterocarps, 60% of which are endemic (i.e., present only in Borneo and not found anywhere else). (Ref. 8) Dipterocarps are large strong hardwood trees suitable for use in many commercial applications including, ex., furniture National Geographic Magazine, April 1959, Volume Cxv, Number 4.
