The illustrations did not wow me, but this is a nice overview of many of the plants and animals of the rain forest (focusing primarily on tropical rain forests, but temperate forests are mentioned as well). The book also details some of the benefits we receive from rain forests as well as the importance of protecting these old growth forests.
