There is variety everywhere in the rainforest. Roadkill data can be analyzed by observers and will be used to understand where roadkill occurs and the severity of the impact to wildlife species. "Pericopsis" is a free and collaborative database for the localization and identification of trees. Planting monocultures makes the crop much more susceptible to pest infestations. So today when I awoke sick for the fourth day in a row, I knew I needed to find a way for the kids to get outdoors.

In his hut by Waiden pond he put into practice his growing convictions. Other slower- moving species, such as the tamandua anteater and tree pangolin (see p. 53). use their prehensile tails for stability. 89 People of the rain forest In the remote rain forests of Borneo, fragments of medieval Chinese pottery have been found, and naturalized fruit trees that can only have been brought there, perhaps as seeds, by human hands.
