Together we are using scientific tools and habits of mind to look for native and invasive species in local habitats. In addition to this, the boundary between rain forest and other types of tropical forest is equally difficult to judge, particularly in view of the fact that disturbance or actual damage by fire can cause the rain forests to degrade into these other forest types.
