Some 60 percent of all the world's species live in jungles. In this best-selling book and celebration of biodiversity, award-winning wildlife photographer Christian Ziegler and biologist Daisy Dent create a monument to jungle life - from Panama to Congo, Madagascar to Australia. With 186 colour photographs and expert texts, they show us some of the most fascinating specimens of jungle flora and fauna: tiny driver ants, nimble ocelots, bonobos, cassowaries, chameleons, colourful orchids, and carnivorous plants. A visually stunning journey through the rain forest, and an urgent reminder of how much our world depends on the preservation of tropical ecosystems. Text in English and German.
