Rosario Costa-Cabral and her brothers harvest hundreds of fruits, oils and wood products from the stream-laced forest of the Amazon River delta. They also are helping the rainforest to regenerate, even as they cultivate a living from its diversity. But the climate here is changing: Tides rise higher, and seasonal floods are growing worse.
