Der Gesang der Bäume

Die verborgenen Netzwerke der Natur

Author: David G. Haskell

Publisher: Antje Kunstmann

ISBN: 3956142160

Category: Nature

Page: 320

View: 6088

David G. Haskell hat ein Dutzend Bäume in verschiedenen Weltgegenden und ihre Verbindungen mit Pilzen, Bakterien, Tieren und anderen Pflanzen erforscht. Ein Kapokbaum im Amazonasgebiet macht das reiche Ökosystem in einem tropischen Urwald, aber auch die Gefahren, die von nahe gelegenen Ölfeldern ausgehen, sichtbar. Tausende von Kilometern davon entfernt, in Kanada, überleben die Wurzeln einer Balsamtanne in kargem Boden nur in Partnerschaft mit Pilzen. An fossiler Holzkohle, die von Eiszeitmenschen hinterlassen wurde, und versteinerten Redwoods in den Rocky Mountains zeigt Haskell, wie sich das Klima durch das Netzwerk der Bäume, der Bodenorganismen und der Atmosphäre entwickelt hat. Haskell erforscht aber auch Bäume in von Menschen dominierten Räumen – einen Pfirsichbaum in Manhattan, einen Olivenbaum in Jerusalem, einen Bonsai in Japan – und macht klar, dass kein Geschöpf ohne die wilden biologischen Verflechtungen leben kann. Diese vernetzte Sicht auf das Leben bereichert unser Verständnis von Biologie, menschlicher Natur und Ethik. Wenn wir Bäumen, den großen Netzwerkern der Natur, zuhören, lernen wir, wie wir Beziehungen leben können, die dem Leben Substanz und Schönheit verleihen.

Zimmerbonsai

ISBN: 3833822112

Page: 64

Die über 1000 Jahre alte Kunst fasziniert noch heute: Bonsai verkörpern die Harmonie zwischen Mensch und Natur. Zimmerbonsai erlauben es sogar, sich kunstvoll gestaltete Einzelbäume oder ganze Landschaften in einer Pflanzschale ins Haus zu holen und den Zauber dieser Pflanzengestalten zu genießen. Je nach Gestaltungsstil erzählen Zimmerbonsai von Wind und Wetter an ihrem natürlichen Standort und drücken auch menschliche Charaktereigenschaften aus: So symbolisiert beispielsweise ein Zimmerbonsai in streng aufrechter Form den Samurai, den nichts aus der Ruhe bringt, die Zwillingsform steht für ein Ehepaar, das über Jahrzehnte zusammengewachsen ist. Auch chinesische Schriftzeichen finden sich in den Gestaltungsvarianten, etwa das Zeichen für Kraft oder das Symbol für Überlebenswillen. Expertentipps und Anleitungen für die Pflege und Gestaltung verraten, wie aus einem Baum ein kunstvoller Zimmerbonsai entsteht und wie aus der Beschäftigung mit den Pflanzen ein faszinierendes Hobby wird.
