Monkeys. Brilliantly colored birds. Deadly poison frogs. Ant-infested plants. Wonderful butterflies and strange beetles. These are all the characters in the eleven intriguing ecological mysteries described in this book.

Each mystery begins when a scientist notices something unusual in tropical nature and asks a question.  Why would several monkeys suddenly fall from the trees? How do tiny frogs make deadly poisons? Why are passion vines so difficult to find? Why do certain plants harbor hordes of biting ants? What kind of creature pollinates an odd-looking flower?

Follow along as the investigating scientists make observations, track down clues, set up curious experiments, and ultimately discover some of the surprising and hidden connections that make tropical forests so fascinating–and so fragile.  Ms. Quinlan’s carefully researched illustrations help readers visualize tropical forests, diverse plants and animals and the details of each mystery.

Here is a book that will both fascinate and amaze, leading readers to a greater sense of appreciation of the complexity of tropical forests and all of nature.
