seventh of the world's total volcanic activity. Every day seismograph register
tremors throughout Indonesia and never a year goes by without an eruption of

form part of the "ring of fire" that encircles the Pacific Ocean. The ring is

of flora have so far been identified. And when you break of the forest canopy to
