Description
From bestselling natural history author Peter Wohlleben, spellbinding science and thought-provoking insights that will change the way you think about the natural world.
The Hidden Life of Trees: a walk in the woods will never be the same again after reading this captivating exploration of forests and when understanding woods as a social network. Once-thought to be largely passive, fascinating scientific discoveries explore the diverse and active connections now known to exist between trees. How trees develop in family groups, how they share food and how they communicate, even warning the group of dangers. It takes a forest to create a microclimate that nurtures trees; isolated trees have far shorter lives than those living connected together in forests.
The Secret Network of Nature: exploring the unseen connections which sustain the entire natural world. How trees can influence the earth’s rotation; how wolves can alter a river’s course; and how the humble earthworm can control a population of wild boar. Revealing the intricate web of connections within the natural world. Drawing on scientific discoveries and decades of his own experience as a forester in Germany, the author demonstrates how animals, plants, rivers, rocks and weather systems co-operate; while highlighting what is at stake when an imbalance occurs between these delicate systems.
