Synopsis

Life in the Rainforest by John Erbacher, Sue Erbacher

Life in the Rainforest describes life in the Australian tropical rainforests. The photographs have been taken in the Daintree Rainforest region, which is possibly the best remaining example of Australia's tropical rainforests. The book refers to flora and fauna as well as the Aboriginal population which has co-existed with this rainforest for generations. The rainforest is shown as an intricate web of life and death delicately balanced to maintain what is called a tropical rainforest. The full colour photographs were specifically taken for this book in order to appeal to the young student reader. They show the magnificent beauty of this natural environment and its fragile existence. Issues of rainforest destruction, introduced species and use by indigenous people are explored after the reader understands the working of the forest.
