Incomprehensible dependencies in the beauty of the world – “Foliage”

There are life phenomena that are difficult to define unambiguously. Nature has its own rules – and although it leaves us room for interpretation, it retains a mysterious beauty that is sometimes difficult to understand. However, it is worth looking for stories. “Foliage” is a story of activism and resistance, written with panache and passion, while simultaneously dazzling description and ode to the natural world.

The American novelist takes us on an extraordinary journey to show that there is a parallel world next to us – huge, slow, interconnected, resourceful, wonderfully inventive and almost invisible to us.

Metamorphoses of Nature, Mysterious Forest Structure – “The Secret Life of Trees”

A large and complex ecosystem. Peculiar culture – natural civilization. What is a forest? How to determine his power? It’s easy to get lost in it, not easy to find. But therein lies its wild beauty and strength. Great things happen in the forest.

When analyzing the world of nature, we come across alarming data and statistics that should provoke us to ask new questions. About the source of threats. How to deal with the dangers? The fauna and flora disappear almost every day, but at the same time it is determined to be reborn. “A new climate war. How to save our planet?” is a special book in which an expert on the subject – a scientist and journalist – instructs us to be careful. Here Michael E. Mann, a climatologist and recognized authority on the subject, exposes an inconvenient truth: Fossil fuel companies have made us all responsible for saving the planet in their disinformation campaign. So, in a way, the author provokes people to search for the truth. What is important and interesting, however, Mann does not stop at a pessimistic diagnosis, but shows how to get out of the situation. He draws up a clear action plan and identifies individual threats: industrial polluters, politicians associated with them financially, facade organizations, as well as celebrities who have joined the disinformation campaign.

See What’s Imperceptible – “Sticks, Stems”

Book “Sticks, Stems” is a particularly ambiguous account of a researcher who follows only the paths of nature.

Secrets of health and ecology, that is nature in harmony with human life

We have presented the most interesting books that can be guides about ecology. But it’s not all.
