Jack, this is a great read. A forester using the language of humanity to explain what happens in the forest between the trees and other organisms in the community. Some of this I learned in the tree keeper classes a few years ago and much in biology . But this book gives a deeper understanding of the processes and cooperation and interdependence of a forest. While predation and competition are part of the equation, there is also much cooperation and nurturing within the many species of earth. Would be a departure for plants not to benefit from this as well. Thanks again for the recommendation.
