Data Collection in the Amazon
Image showing primitive conditions at a scientific research station in the Peruvian Rainforest.  This image links to a more detailed image.The numbers for all the big questions about the Amazon rain forest - how many species there are, how much of the forest is gone, how much the carbon dioxide from the fires is contributing to the greenhouse effect - are blowing in the wind. There are only educated guesses, faiths, and political positions. How can you begin to quantify the extent of the destruction, for instance - a highly controversial question to which careers are devoted - when, as we shall see, there isn't even agreement on the size of the seven states and territories, and the parts of two others, that constitute legal Amazonia? (Shoumatoff, 1990).
