About the Book

For the first time in history biologist Donald Perry decided to push jungle exploration upwards. Instead of examining the jungle floor, he devised a net system of ropes, with the help of mountain climbing skills, that allowed him to be the first to explore the topmost layer of the rainforest. What he found amount those treetops was a hidden world of discovery, a environment all its own. Life Above the Jungle Floor is part adventure story, part scientific study. The New York times Book Review called Donald Perry, “the Jacques Cousteau of the tropical rain forest.”
