One tenth of all the world’s species live on Amazonia, feeding off each other, pollinating each other, dependent in a web of life. A botanist and a zoologist explain and show the delicate balance between plant and animal life, and find that to survive at all a forest reserve must be over a certain size, and that if the present rate of tree felling continues it will have a major effect on the balance of nature.
Part of the Decade of Destruction series

Made in 1986 this film reflects the cultural attitudes of the country and language of the time it was made. Useful to compare with today as the issues raised are timeless
