"Foundations of Tropical Forest Biology" presents a timely collection of pioneering work in the study of these diverse and fascinating ecosystems. Modelled on the highly successful "Foundations of Ecology", this book consists of facsimiles of papers chosen by world experts in tropical biology as the "classics" in the field. The papers are organized into sections on related topics, each introduced with a discussion of their role in triggering subsequent research. Topics covered include ecological and evolutionary perspectives on the origins of tropical diversity; plant-animal interactions; patterns of species diversity and distribution of arthropods, vertebrates and plants; forest dynamics and ecosystem ecology; conservation biology; and tropical forest management. "Foundations of Tropical Forest Biology" makes essential works in the development of tropical biology available in a convenient form to both senior scholars interested in the roots of their discipline and to students encountering the field for the first time, as well as to everyone concerned with tropical conservation.
