In this edition of the Paper Trail , two researchers work globally to reverse the fragmentation of forest ecosystems at the local scale. Although they took inspiration from different sources, both were moved early on by what has become known as a dire situation in the preservation of biodiversity. They decided to go to none other than the tropics, which is ground zero for world biodiversity. Today, they conduct much of their research based on the fundamental principles of the Biological Dynamics of Forest Fragments Project. Those who value nature and make a lifelong commitment to protect it have many different backgrounds and take their own road to get there, even a boy who started out wanting to be a zoo biologist.
