Summary
The Living Forest is a journey into one of the planet's most familiar yet most mysterious habitats. Learn the science behind the wonder, as you gaze down on a pine tree canopy brimming with nesting herons, go nose-to-nose with a larval salamander, witness time-lapse imagery of emerging leaves, and marvel at the stranger-than-fiction ways plants, insects, mammals, birds, and fungi interact and cooperate. In this realm, the tiny and the grand, the living and the dead, the seen and the unseen all have essential roles to play.--INSIDE FLAP.
