My research focuses on the processes by which oil palm is being introduced and contested in Peru. The differences make intuitive sense given the high diversity and larger size of trees in the tropics versus sub-arctic regions.

Krakatau is only 40 kilometres (25 miles) from the coasts of Java and Sumatra, and relatively easily colonized. We are experiencing some problems, please try again. Cloud forests such those at Monteverde contain some of the richest assortments of tropical plants and animals in the world. Many grass-roots organizations have seen the tfap approach as too arrogantly patronising, both in its design and implementation. Other species are monitored because they are used as game (bushmeat) or are threatened (e.g., Nasi and Frost 2009, Harrison 2011).

Use your flashlight, and the help of a guide, to uncover unusual nocturnal creatures and their habitats. The harpy couple often reuses the same nest over many years. We train participants to use pH and conductivity meters and to conduct dissolved oxygen titrations in the field in order to collect information on the health of their rivers and streams. The causes of the discrepancies in the estimates for each area are described in greater detail in the following section. Ecology 82: 105-116 Pe�alosa J (1984) Basal branching and vegetative spread in two tropical rain forest lianas.

These stores of water, high up in the canopy, are an important feature of the rain forests. Here we build on these ideas and put them in a forest restoration context. Their most recent findings, reported in the Nov. 1 issue of the journal Nature, offer insight into the balance of carbon uptake and release that contribute to atmospheric carbon dioxide levels worldwide.
