About the Author

Golden Guides first appeared in 1949 and quickly established themselves as authorities on subjects from Natural History to Science. Relaunched in 2000, Golden Guides from St. Martin's Press feature modern, new covers as part of a multi-year, million-dollar program to revise, update, and expand the complete line of guides for a new generation of students.

Allen M. Young, Ph.D., obtained his B.A. degree from the State University of New York at New Paltz and his Ph.D. in Zoology from the University of Chicago. His two years of post-doctoral research with the Organization for Tropical Studies in Costa Rica was the beginning of what has become a lifelong career studying and writing about tropical rainforest insects. Currently Curator of Zoology and Vice President for Collections, Research, and Public Programs at the Milwaukee Public Museum, Dr. Young has published several books—Population, Biology of Tropical Insects, The Sarapiqui Chronicle, The Chocolate Tree, Lives Intertwined, and Small Creatures and Ordinary Places—plus more than 300 original scientific papers.

Judith Huf has worked as an artist in many fields, from painting and sculpture to technical and scientific illustration and creating exhibits for nature centers and museums. This is the second book she has illustrated for Dr. Young.

I recomend this book to anyone who has an interest in rainforest wildlife. This book with its mix of great graphic details and pleasent pictures for younger kids who's attenion isn't captured by long dreadful words. With details and pictures intertwined this makes an enjoyful books to read and to learn.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Alyssa A. Lappen TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on February 9, 2010
Format: Paperback
This is a terrific little 160-page guide for students young and old, whether studying the tropical ecosystems from an armchair on on hikes in tropical regions. The illustrations are indeed water colors, but are extremely life like, and resemble photographs in many cases. They also emphasize particular markings, making certain bird and plant species easier to identify than with simple photographs alone.
