    Finding the Mother Tree

    No one has done more to transform our understanding of trees than the world-renowned scientist Suzanne Simard. Now she shares the secrets of a lifetime spent uncovering startling truths about trees: their cooperation, healing capacity, memory, wisdom and sentience. Raised in the forests of British Columbia, where her family has lived for generations, Professor Simard did not set out to be a scientist. She was working in the forest service when she first discovered how trees communicate underground through an immense web of fungi, at the centre of which lie the Mother Trees: the mysterious, powerful entities that nurture their kin and sustain the forest. Though her findings were initially dismissed and even ridiculed, they are now firmly supported by the data. As her remarkable journey shows us, science is not a realm apart from ordinary life, but deeply connected with our humanity.

    Rebirding

    The UK is undergoing a mass extinction of birds and wildlife after two centuries of intensification. Many books lament the decline of British wildlife – this is the first to map out how this could be turned around, economically and in the national interest. We have all the space we need for nature; now, at last, it’s time to put it to good use.

    What We Need To Do Now

    ‘What We Need To Do Now’ sets out a comprehensive programme of action to counter the threats to our environment. It is a manifesto for individuals and groups around the world that are seeking urgent action on climate breakdown and other threats. The book emphasises the importance, and relative simplicity, of decarbonising our energy supply but also stresses that this is a small part of the switch to a sustainable planet. Among many other urgent transitions, we also need to focus on changing the agricultural system and reducing our hugely wasteful use of resources. And, fundamentally, we need to ensure that the transition to a zero carbon world benefits the less well-off and reinvigorates the smaller cities and towns around the world that have been left behind.
