New York Times bestselling writer Peter Wohlleben visits Point Reyes to discuss his two books, The Hidden Life of Trees and the Inner Life of Animals.
The Hidden Life of Trees: first of a three-part series investigating the wonders of nature by New York Times bestselling author Peter Wohlleben.
Are trees social beings? In this international bestseller, forester and author Peter Wohlleben convincingly makes the case that, yes, the forest is a social network. He draws on groundbreaking scientific discoveries to describe how trees are like human families: tree parents live together with their children, communicate with them, support them as they grow, share nutrients with those who are sick or struggling, and even warn each other of impending dangers. Wohlleben also shares his deep love of woods and forests, explaining the amazing processes of life, death, and regeneration he has observed in his woodland. After learning about the complex life of trees, a walk in the woods will never be the same again.
Through vivid stories of devoted pigs, two-timing magpies, and scheming roosters, The Inner Life of Animals weaves the latest scientific research into how animals interact with the world with Peter Wohlleben’s personal experiences in forests and fields.
Horses feel shame, deer grieve, and goats discipline their kids. Ravens call their friends by name, rats regret bad choices, and butterflies choose the very best places for their children to grow up.
In this, his latest book, Wohlleben offers insightful stories into the emotions, feelings, and intelligence of animals around us. Animals are different from us in ways that amaze us–and they are also much closer to us than we ever would have thought.
