Contents Notes
Part I: Structure and Function in Tree Canopies -- Part II: Organisms in Tree Canopies -- Part III: Processes in Tree Canopies -- Part IV: Human Impacts on Canopy Research. "For decades, researchers have been interested in the structure, function, and inhabitants of forest canopies, but unfortunately, a large portion of this fascinating ecosystem was inaccessible. Recently, with the use of balloons, dirigibles, cranes, towers, suspended catwalks, and a variety of modern climbing equipment, scientists have begun to penetrate this dense foliage, allowing for a detailed, authoritative account of this enchanting world. Forest Canopies synthesizes the newly compiled data on canopy-dwelling organisms, including insects and other arthropods, lizards, birds, mammals, and, of course, the plants that both form and inhabit this unique aerial ecosystem."--Jacket.
