The Secret Network of Nature: The Delicate Balance of All Living Things

by Peter Wohlleben - £14.99  Vintage Publishing (The Bodley Head Ltd) (2018)
hardback    ISBN 13: 9781847925244 | ISBN 10: 1847925243

Did you know that trees can influence the rotation of the earth?
Or that wolves can alter the course of a river?
Or that earthworms control wild boar populations?
 
The natural world is a web of intricate connections, many of which go unnoticed by humans. But it is these connections that maintain nature’s finely balanced equilibrium.
 
Drawing on the latest scientific discoveries and decades of experience as a forester and bestselling author, Peter Wohlleben shows us how different animals, plants, rivers, rocks and weather systems cooperate, and what's at stake when these delicate systems are unbalanced.
 
The earth's ecosystems are too complex for us to compartmentalise and draw up simple rules of cause and effect; but The Secret Network of Nature gives us a chance to marvel at the inner workings and unlikely partnerships of the natural world, where every entity has its own distinct purpose.
 
And the more light that is shed on relationships between species, the more fascinating nature's web becomes.
