Giants of Guyana’s Forests

Giants of Guyana’s Forests

 By Stabroek News On December 25, 2011– Features
The Iwokrama Forest and Rupununi Wetlands are home to healthy populations of Guyana’s Giants. While this is impressive, these giants are rare and in many cases, endangered, despite being large. Ironically, these giants are very hard to see throughout most of their range as they are at the top of the food chains and need a lot of space to roam and hunt.  Keystone species are important for maintaining balance in ecosystems and ecosystem functions; if keystone species are removed, it can lead to cascading changes in other species populations, disrupt the population balances of other animals that they would have preyed on as well as natural ecological functions such as seed dispersal and plant structure in a forest.
