  • I took this book with me to the jungle It was the best thing I ve read on the ecology of the and other neotropical areas One thing I learned is that neotropic means the tropics of the New World The book manages to take dull science and make it live The author is a biologist or botanist but also an excellent writer He breaks down the various aspects of the ecology of the neotropics, from trees and plants to birds and insects Fascinating to read about what I observed in situ, i.e leaf cutter ants, [...]


  • Often used these days as part of the freshman reading burden,but a great read and overview for, uh people who aren t college freshmen, but have a keen interest in, or plans to travel in, our hemisphere s tropics.Great focus on Central America Brazil, birds Kricher is, by calling, a birdperson and evolutionary biology in general.


  • Definitely one of the best books I ve read all year, if not in the past couple of years I m sure I ll have to say on it once we re back from our trip, but I think it s fair to say I m even excited about it now that I ve read this book In fact, if I didn t have a trip booked to Central South America already, I would have to book one shortly after finishing this, if not by the time I finished chapter 2 Full to the brim of excellent citations but also extremely readable even for a lay reader, it [...]


  • A fairly technical and academic introduction to neotropical ecosystems Happily it is also highly readable, consistently fascinating and even amusing in places The highlight for me were the long, clear discussions of forest succession and evolutionary patterns in tropical rain forests Less consistently engaging than Tropical Nature, but also useful in case you actually wanted to identify that strange tree, bird, bug, snake you are looking at.


  • A great introduction to the natural history of Latin America, covering the theoretical like explanations for its incredible biodiversity, and acting as a general guidebook to the plants and animals of the region s various ecosystems from the emblematic rainforest to the lesser known savannas and mountain tops The author s knowledge is both extensive and in depth, though for the specialist interested in specific areas the bibliography would be of greater use Now if only all regions of the world h [...]


  • A must read for anyone going to the New World Tropics This is of a reference book than a read from cover to cover book, however I referred to it a lot for species identification when I was writing my first book Cool Creatures, Hot Planet Exploring the Seven Continents.


  • Excellent background for anyone who will be traveling to ia I read it before my trip to Costa Rica, and I believe it enhanced the experience since I had a better understanding of the flora and fauna of the region.


  • Comprehensive, fascinating, and beautifully written a must read for anybody who really wants to understand the ecology of the neotropics I almost want to pick this back up and start reading it again


  • First time I read this was in the project room in the MLC field centre in Peru looked on by a tarantula sitting quietly in the rafters.I have since bought my own copy Fantastically witty, informative and inspirational A true companion for anyone heading to the rainforest.


  • important v important if ya like natural history and care in the least about the FATE OF THE WORLD and all and just facts you can use in trivial pursuit or crossword puzzles, well hell, for nuthin else read this if ya don t care about the FATE OF THE WORLD part don t and go to hell.


  • This was the reading material for a tropical field biology course I took in the spring of 2012 Very accessible and fun to read It would have been perfect had it covered the marine aspect of the neotropics.


  • Una excelente y detallada descripci n de los tr picos, soy una amante de la naturaleza y los animales, as que fue una gu a estupenda sobre el as


  • Such a wealth of knowledge here If you are going to be traveling in Central America, this will help you to understand the natural world around you Just fascinating
