From one of our greatest science writers, this biography of a
beech-and-bluebell wood through diverse moods and changing seasons
combines stunning natural history with the ancient history of the
countryside to tell the full story of the British landscape. Guided
by his abiding love of nature and a lifetime of scientific
expertise, Richard Fortey takes us on a journey through ecosystems
and time. The Wood for the Trees is the story of humankind meeting
nature, an homage to the mesmerising interactions between flora,
fauna and fungi. Discover the lives of animals and plants; the
passage of seasons; visits by fellow enthusiasts; the play of light
between branches; the influence of geology; and how woodland has
shaped history, architecture, and industry. On every page Fortey
shows how an intimate study of one small wood can reveal so much
about the natural world, and demonstrates his relish for the
incomparable pleasures of discovery.
