    Iwokrama is a vast, protected, wilderness covered with lowland tropical forest. Activities here include boat trips and guided walks to see such wildlife as black caiman, and a variety of birds including the iconic Guinanan cock-of-the-rock and scarlet macaw. The rain forest canopy hosts a large percentage of the world's plant biodiversity, which is maintained, in large part, by internal nutrient cycling. This is the first study to examine the effects of site (canopy, forest floor) and tree species (Dipteryx panamensis, Lecythis ampla, Hyeronima alchorneoides) on decay rates of a common substrate and in situ leaf litter in a tropical forest in Costa Cited by:
