Overview

Follow along as a researcher observes and makes journal entries about their field trip through the Amazon rain forest ecosystem. Outstanding photographs highlight the animals, plants, and people that inhabit the world's largest tropical rain forest stretching across eight countries in South America. Simple graphs show how much the rain forest has changed, and the final report describes efforts being made to preserve it. Teacher’s guide available.
