Résumé: A place we long to be in, a provider of lumber helping us safeguard the climate, a responsibility we fear we are not living up to : today, forests command attention like few other topics. But how are our forests really faring ? How many trees does the Amazon actually have ? Why do the woods need wolves ? Why does fire not spell destruction for many forests ? Is it true that trees are not aggressive ? And what makes a forest a forest in the first place ? Forests in Our World offers answers to these and many other questions. Gunther Willinger takes readers on a fascinating journey through Earth's five forest formations— from the coniferous forests of the far north to the rainforests of the tropics— and explains both the complex relationship between the forest, the climate, and the environment, and what humans must do to preserve these marvels. Illustrated with images from the renowned Nature Picture Library as well as from the author's own archive, this book will open your eyes to the fascinating world of forests in a whole new way.
