Introduction to the mission and research of the Center for Amazon Community Ecology. Part 1 of this two part probes the relationship between bark-boring weevils and the insects that provoke the formation of resin on copal trees in the Amazon region and the importance of this resin to bees and forest people. The piece focuses on the Center's copal study at the Center for Investigation at Jenaro Herrera - a research facility operated by the Institute for Investigation of the Peruvian Amazon (IIAP).
