"Any biologist or conservation manager interested in tropicalforests cannot overlook this book, and will find much of interest and value. Entomologists and naturalists planningto visit northern Queensland will benefit from the perspective itgives, in a synthesis of lasting value which-I hope-will be afurther stimulus to conservation of thisunique suite ofecosystems."
