Chemistry of the Amazon: Biodiversity, Natural Products, and Environmental Issues
Peter Rudolf Seidl, Otto Richard Gottlieb and
Maria Auxiliadora Coelho Kaplan (Eds.)

Discusses biodiversity conservation in tropical rainforests.
Presents an overview of research on bioactive natural products from the Amazon. Examines current research and investigations of the chemical evolution. Addresses biogeochemistry issues of tropical systems. Provides an overview of environmental issues related to Amazon biodiversity including the impact of surface mining on the quality of air, water, and soil.
