    Tropical rainforests support the greatest diversity of living organisms on Earth. Although they cover less than 2 percent of Earth's surface, they house an estimated 50 percent of all life on the planet. The immense numbers of creatures that inhabit the tropical rainforests are so great--an estimated million species--they are almost incomprehensible.

The book Tropical Forest Diversity and Dynamism: Findings from a Large-Scale Plot Network, Edited by Elizabeth Losos and Egbert Giles Leigh Jr. is published by University of Chicago Press. Long-term Forest Dynamics Plots (FDPs) allow ecologists to explain patterns in diversity and dynamics in tropical forests around the world.

In this collection, Elizabeth Losos and Egbert Giles Leigh Jr. assemble extensive standardized data—collected here in one location for the Tropical forest diversity and dynamism book time—from sixteen tropical FDPs and synthesize the findings, putting these unique and valuable plots in a Author: Elizabeth Losos.

Written by experts in the field of tropical ecology, Tropical Forest Diversity and Dynamism will appeal to students and professionals with an interest in community ecology and patterns of diversity. Editorial Reviews Review "The book's main strength is that it summarizes a truly impressive amount of data about tropical forest structure Author: Elizabeth Losos.

Tropical Rain Forest Ecology, Diversity, and Conservation introduces and explores what rain forests are, how they arose, what they contain, how they function, and how humans use and impact them.

Leigh (eds). University of Chicago Press, Chicago and London,pages. Price US$ ISBN How can so many kinds of tropical trees coexist in a uniform tract of tropical forest.

This is one of the significant questions this book attempts to answer, by presenting the current findings from an extensive Author: ROGERS, HOWARD.

Tropical forest ecologists co-ordinated by the centre for Tropical Forest Science have been conducting pioneering research on the structure, dynamics, and functioning of tropical forests for more than 2 decades, establishing a network of large-scale forest dynamics plots (FDPs) on which all trees above a minimum threshold size have been measured, mapped, and identified.

Mar 18,  · Tropical rainforests support higher land area units (acres or hectares) of biodiversity when compared to temperate or arid forest ecosystems. There are some educated guesses by experts that tropical rainforests on our planet contain about 50% of the world’s terrestrial plant and animal species.

The tropical rain forest is the most exuberant manifestation of nature's diversity, and the abundance of life it nurtures has captured the fascination of scientists since the time of Darwin.

A single tree in the rain forest may support as many as species of beetle alone, and different kinds of trees may inhabit a. Books in Biological Sciences: Tropical Biology and Conservation published or distributed by the University of Chicago Press.

Tropical biodiversity is certainly impressive and the rainforest ecosystem is unique in species richness.

Unlike most monotonous temperate forests, rainforests are home to a very high number of tree species. Trees of one species are spaced far apart throughout the forest but can be close together if forest conditions are right. For recent publications, see profiles on Google Scholar and ResearcherID.
