The Forest Unseen: A Year's Watch in Nature
By: David George Haskell

Beginning with simple ebservations a salamander scuttling across the leaf litter: the first blossom of spring wildflowers Haskell spins a brilliant web of biology, ecology, and poetry. He explains the science that binds together the tiniest microbes and the largest mammals, and describes the ecosystems that have cycled for thousands sometimes millions of years. written with remarkable grace and empathy, The Forest Unseen is a grand tour of nature in all its beauty and complexity.
