Canopy Evolution is a theory of human descent developed by Dr. Donald Perry.
Roger B. Swain reviewer for the New York Times stated "Donald Perry, whose goal is to promote canopy exploration all around the world, may someday be remembered as the Jacques Cousteau of the tropical forest."
For over three decades Dr. Perry has developed new methods for exploring and understanding the complex biological communities found in the tops of tropical trees.
He was the first to use zip-lines to study the rain forest canopy. This work appeared on the covers of Scientific American, Smithsonian, and New York Sunday Times magazines. It was featured in Newsweek, Life, Geo, Paris Match, Quick of Germany, as well as numerous publications and documentaries worldwide.
The feature film Medicine Man was based upon his book LIFE ABOVE THE JUNGLE FLOOR .
