Adrian Forsyth

I am a Canadian with an interest in tropical rainforests, especially the 6-legged elements of these systems. My fieldwork in the Amazon and related areas began in 1970. I have variously sustained my work and play there as a university professor, free-lance writer, professional conservationist and consultant. Needless to say, these occupations require more than a little travel to remote locations. Believe it or not, my family puts up with my peripatetic life. In defense-- I do the cooking at home and wash the dishes. Hobbies include building houses in remote sites, gardening, sea kayaking, dung beetle ecology, and writing natural history books (nine so far). In addition to my work at the W. Alton Jones Foundation, I am president of the Amazon Conservation Association working to conserve the Amazonian wilderness.
