"Outstanding science writing and impressive scholarship make this a first choice for science enthusiasts... The author, a field biologist, introduces observations that puzzle scientists... She then explains how scientists begin with an observation, develop a hypothesis, and then set up and conduct experiments to support or refute it. Individual mysteries are woven together to provide the reader with a better understanding of the complex fragile ecosystem of the rain forest and to urge responsible stewardship."---Kirkus Reviews

"Quinlan's book is well organized and clearly written, with scientific terms and concepts explained as they appear. Besides presenting some fascinating case studies in a style that conveys the thrill of the scientific chase, it also provides information on the different kinds of tropical forests and how they function.... Unique in its approach and will appeal to both students of natural history and browsers with a taste for the unusual."---School Library Journal

"An intriguing introduction to the process of scientific study and to the interconnected plants and animals of tropical forests."---Booklist
