Rainforest Canopy (82) More files... by Dr. Mark W. Moffett
Hundreds of feet above the floor of the Indonesian rainforest, a reseracher draws back his bow to shoot fishing line over adjacent trees where he will rig traps to monitor seed dispersal. A reserach crane towers high into the forest canopy allowing access to the upper reaches while leaving the plants and animals undisturbed. A shiny metallic tortoise beetle glows lke a golden jewel. Dr. Mark W. Moffett traveled to four continents and climbed to dizzying heights to bring us tis spectacular reportage exploring the ecology of the world's tropical rainforests.Text by Dr. Mark W. Moffett
