This comprehensive volume provides readers with answers to some of the most basic questions about the world's disappearing rainforests and serves as a guide to further exploration of the subject. The volume examines the reasons for the forests' destruction, the effects of deforestation on indigenous plant and animal life as well as the entire planet, and what policies and actions are currently being taken to stop the clearing efforts. Annotated listings of organizations and print and nonprint resources are included to assist in more in-depth studies. While not promising any easy answers, the volume provides solid, useful information that can serve as a foundation for research, decision making, or enhanced understanding of this critical subject.
