Summary Note In an era of mobile phone addiction and ever-expanding cities, many of us fear we've lost our connection to nature -- but Peter Wohlleben is convinced that age-old ties linking humans to the natural world remain alive and intact. Whether we observe it or not, our blood pressure stabilises near trees, the colour green calms us and being in the forest sharpens our senses. Drawing on new scientific discoveries, The Heartbeat of Trees reveals the profound interactions humans can have with nature, exploring the language of the forest, the consciousness of plants and the eroding boundary between flora and fauna. Wohlleben shares how to see, feel, smell, hear and even taste your journey into the woods. Above all, he reveals a wondrous cosmos where humans are part of nature, and where conservation is not just about saving trees -- it's about saving ourselves, too.
