The Flooded Forest

The picture shows the flooded forest. It is a most interesting environment. It is good to fish in during the wet season, with the fish swimming underneath trees waiting for fruit and berries to fall. Michael Goulding has made two films for the BBC which are well worth viewing on the seasonal changes and human interaction with the environment. There is also a book based on the films, called The Flooded Forest. His most recent book with some co-authors is called The Floods of Fortune and shows why deforestation on the floodplain is both ecologically and economically ruinous of the future.
