Abstract/Summary Solomon Islands Forest Life is a collaborative effort drawing on the experience and knowledge of many individuals. The book was compiled as part of a project funded by the Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund with support from John D and Catherine T MacArthur Foundation and will be distributed for free among secondary schools throughout Solomon Islands. Solomon Islands Forest Life gives an overview of the terrestrial environments of the Solomon Islands, their ecology, important species, and some of the key threats they face. The Solomon Islands are one of the most biologically rich archipelagos on earth. Huge proportions of the animals and plants found there are endemic, meaning they are found nowhere else on earth. These species are closely linked to the culture, livelihoods and well being of people. Commercial logging, mining and a fast rate of population growth threaten the forests of Solomon Islands and are placing increasing pressure on natural resources. This book aims to complement the already deep understanding of the terrestrial environment by Solomon Islanders, allowing them to learn more and assist them in understanding how to manage new threats.
