In his book trilogy, Petter Wohlleben brings to the public scholar work presenting mysteries of nature. Forests are complex and fascinating ecosystems that regroup trees, water, air, soil and animals. How are trees interconnected? How is everything related? How humans can explore nature’s world with the same dept as animals?
The hidden life of trees
In this book, Petter Wohlleben details life of trees with unexpected stories about how they communicate together and live in community. Forests are similar to human societies with parents raising children and once grown up children taking care of their parents. The hidden part of trees’ life is in soils where impressive root networks allow trees to communicate and exchange nutrients.
The secret network of nature
This is a nice book to read for anyone interested in biodiversity and the “giant clockwork mechanism” of Nature. In the book the author gives so many examples of how everything is linked and interconnected. He explains why even very small (and well-intended) human interventions disturb nature equilibrium and lead to natural disasters.
The inner life of animals
This book shows many examples of the dept with which animals explore nature’s world and however, us humans are biologically capable of the same. By spending more time in time and developing consciousness, we should be able to communicate with nature’s world. After all, aren’t we part of Nature?
