Breakfast of Biodiversity- Reaction

   Breakfast of Biodiversity was a pretty enjoyable read.  I learned a lot about the rainforest and about the banana companies who are operating in the Latin American rainforest.  One thing that stood out that I found particularly interesting was the point made about the rainforest not being as fragile as everyone perceives it to be.  The rainforest is actually able to bounce back from a lot of damae.  In addition, it was interesting how the book dispelled the misconception that cutting down trees is the real problem in rainforests.  The real problem, ecologically speaking, is agricultural and what is done with  the land following its being cleared.
