Are trees social beings? In this international bestseller, forester and author Peter Wohlleben convincingly makes the case that, yes, the forest is a social network. He draws on groundbreaking scientific discoveries to describe how trees are like human families: tree parents live together with their children, communicate with them, support them as they grow, share nutrients with those who are sick or struggling, and even warn each other of impending dangers. Wohlleben also shares his deep love of woods and forests, explaining the amazing processes of life, death, and regeneration he has observed in his woodland. After you have read The Hidden Life of Trees, a walk in the woods will never be the same again. ‘Opening this book, you are about to enter a wonderland.’ —Tim Flannery, author of Atmosphere of Hope and The Weather Makers ‘Charming, provocative, fascinating.’ —David George Haskell, author of The Forest Unseen, Pulitzer finalist

Can horses feel shame? Do deer grieve? Why do roosters deceive hens? We tend to assume that we are the only living things able to experience feelings but have you ever wondered what’s going on in an animal’s head? From the leafy forest floor to the inside of a bee hive, The Inner Life of Animals opens up the animal kingdom like never before. We hear the stories of a grateful humpback whale, of a hedgehog who has nightmares, and of a magpie who commits adultery; we meet bees that plan for the future, pigs who learn their own names and crows that go tobogganing for fun. And at last we find out why wasps exist.

Forestry today, like many other sectors that traditionally rely on material goods, faces significant global drivers of societal change that are less often addressed than the environmental concerns commonly in the spotlight of scientific, political, and news media. There are three major interconnected issues that are challenging forestry at its foundation: urbanization, tertiarization, and globalization. These issues are at the core of this book. The urbanization of society, a process in development from the first steps of industrialization, is particularly significant today with the predominance and quick growth rate of the world’s urban population. Ongoing urbanization is creating new perspectives on forestry, inducing changes in its social representation, and changing lifestyles and practices with a tendency toward dematerialization. The process of urbanization is also creating a disconnect and in some ways is leaving behind rurality, the sector of society where forestry has traditionally developed and taken place over centuries. The second issue covered in this book is the tertiarization of the economy. In society today, the sector of services largely dominates the economy and occupies the major part of the world’s active population. This ongoing process modifies professional modalities and ways of life and opens new doors to forests through the immaterial goods they provide. It also profoundly changes the framework, rules, processes, means of production, exchanges between economic factors, and the processes of innovation. The third issue is undoubtedly globalization in its economic, political, and social components. Whether it’s through bridging distances, crossing borders, accelerating changes, standardizing practices, leveling hierarchical structures, or pushing for interdependence, globalization impacts everyone, everywhere in multiple ways. Forestry is no exception. Forestry in the Midst of Global Changes focuses on these global drivers of change from the perspective of their relationships with how society functions. By analyzing them in depth through multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary, and even transdisciplinary approaches, this book is helping to design the forestry of tomorrow.

The current geological age has had a profound effect on the relationship between society and nature, and it raises new issues for researchers. It is important for educational research to engage with the politics of knowledge production and address the ecological, economic, and political dynamics of the Anthropocene era. Educational Research in the Age of Anthropocene is a pivotal reference source that provides vital research on the impact of educational research paradigms through the dynamic interaction of human society and the environment. While highlighting topics such as human consciousness, complexity thinking, and queer theory, this publication explores the historical trends of theories, as well as the context in which educational models have been employed. This book is ideally designed for professors, academicians, advanced-level students, scholars, and educational researchers seeking current research on the contestability of educational research in contemporary environments.

Time began its endless journey through ever-expanding space. The early universe was simply a sea of particles floating through space and time. But life's invisible wheels were already in motion and over time the sea of particles became a sea of stars from which Gaia, our Earth, was born - a living, breathing entity - our Goddess, our Mother and our reflection.

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain... Would you like to know why bad things happen to you and learn how to stop them from happening? Do you want to become the happy, energetic, lucky person you've always wanted to be? Here's what you can expect from reading this book: You will become so much lighter that you will feel like you are about to float. You will start to breathe more fully and feel the air around you become sweeter. You will feel like your heart is ready to jump out of your chest. Suddenly, you will notice that people want to be around you more. You will become a story teller. And your stories will bring smiles and laughter. Even the tone of your voice will change. It will become soft yet powerful. You will talk slower and quieter but more people will hear what you have to say. Little, mundane things will seem like a joy to do. You will notice so many details that you will be surprised over and over again: How come you never noticed them before? You will stop to admire a beautiful flower, you will try to touch a rainbow, and you will enjoy listening to the rain. And because you will be so in tune with the creative forces of the Universe, coincidences will begin to happen that will make your life seem magical. You will be in the flow, or in the zone. You will get your dream job. You will meet your soul mate. You will start getting gifts for no reason. You will suddenly learn how to talk to animals and even trees. You will have a sudden desire to start skipping every so often. You will become spontaneous. You will have an abundance of new ideas. You will also start being kinder. You will realize that you are able to heal and to comfort. To get someone out of depression. To save someone's life. You will become more spontaneous, intuitive. You will find your life's purpose. The spiritual, esoteric, mystical side of life will open up and you will want to dance for no reason, to sing or hum a happy tune, to forgive someone who hurt you, to play, to create surprises for other people, and to trust in the higher consciousness of this world. What will this book do for you? It will open the door to a different reality, the one you dreamed about but could never experience before. You will learn that Gypsies moved from India to Europe over one thousand years ago. They taught that magic is the extraordinary power that comes from knowing how to communicate with the benevolent force that orders the Universe, with nature and with the sacred energy that holds everything in balance. To find balance, it's vital to learn to choose the important things that will feed your soul and your body. In this book, here's some of what you will discover: How nature can help you heal; how to have more authentic and deeper connections in your relationships; the secret to recharging your batteries every day when you're feeling exhausted; the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of your well-being, simple exercises and mindfulness techniques that will lead to better days and outlook on life. You'll read the amazing stories of people who were diagnosed with terminal cancer and used natural healing techniques to become entirely free of cancer. You will find practical tips and tools you can use to boost your mood and your health. From advice on overcoming sickness to guidance on manifesting your dreams, this book becomes the essential companion for transforming the bad days into good days and replacing an unsatisfactory life with health and happiness. Along the way, discover how this knowledge originated with the ancient Romani people, and how even in today's modern and stressful society, you can channel nature's powerful and revitalizing energies to celebrate all life that is around you. To embark on this journey to a more fulfilling life, all you need is an open mind.
