"This is an extraordinary, virtually unique work. . . . The tremendous amount of original, previously unpublished, firsthand information is remarkable."-Peter H. Raven, Director, Missouri Botanical Garden

"An essential resource for anyone interested in tropical biology. . . . It can be used both as an encyclopedia-a source of facts on specific organisms-and as a source of ideas and generalizations about tropical ecology."-Alan P. Smith, Ecology
