The Secret Network of Nature: Trees, Animals, and the Extraordinary Balance of All Living Things - Stories from Science and Observation
by Peter Wohlleben Author and Jane Billinghurst Editor
The study of ecology, or the interplay of various species and organism in the natural world, has grown by leaps and bounds in the 20th and 21st centuries. Our understanding of the intricacies of nature has greatly increased, and whole worlds that were once almost completely unfathomable to us have become more accessible. Much is owed to writers like Peter Wohlleben for this newfound familiarity with the mechanics of the natural world, and this book models the kind of ecological writing that can bring scientific wisdom into the realm of popular knowledge. In The Secret Wisdom of Nature, Wohlleben takes the reader on a journey into nature in order to see it with new eyes. Showing us the ways that lifeforms communicate across species boundaries and the seemingly infinite webs of causality and connectedness that abound in nature, Wohlleben reinvigorates our sense of awe and wonder at the world around us. A book with the power to re-enchant the natural world for the reader.
