" It must be remembered that within the tropics, the wild luxuriance of nature is not lost..... Epithet after epithet was found too weak to convey to those who have not visited the intertropical regions, the sensation of delight which the mind experiences.....The land is one great wild, untidy, luxuriant hothouse, made by Nature for herself ."
Charles Darwin, 1845. The Voyage of the Beagle.
