Deep Jungle reveals how technology is changing the nature of jungle exploration, providing scientists with the means to unlock secrets that enlarge our understanding of rain forests and the role that they play in planetary ecology. Filmed in the rain forests of Borneo, Peru, Cambodia, the Central African Republic, and elsewhere, this program follows researchers as they climb nearly 200-foot-high jungle canopies, confront unknown species, unravel mysteries of animal behavior, and explore hidden archaeological sites that harbor clues about lost civilizations.
Part 2: Monsters of the Forest
If a nutshell is too hard to be cracked, how can it be indispensable to the existence of untold numbers of living things? That's one of the mysteries of rain forest ecology tackled in this second episode. It also shows that much of the rainfall in a rain forest is generated in part by the trees themselves, illustrating that even animals that live in rivers or flooded areas miles away from the rain forest depend on it.
