From Gr. 9-12. Following a discussion of what the phrasethe Tropics means, this volume in the Biomes of the Earth series looks at characteristic geology, flora, fauna, and people living in tropical forests today. Information on ecology, biodiversity, management, and environmental threats rounds out the volume, which concludes with a chapter on the future of tropical forests. Although few teens will read the book straight through, those who are researching topics related to tropical forests will find a great deal of information here, well organized and presented in a readable way. The colorful illustrations include excellent maps and diagrams as well as photographs. Steer younger children to Allaby's Tropical Forests (1999), which is part of the Biomes of the World series. An appendix on soil classification is followed by an extensive glossary and lists of recommended books and Web sites. Other titles in the series include Wetlands, Tundra, and Deserts. Carolyn Phelan
