Maser, Chris et al.

Presents an opinion that we must understand the complexity and interdependency of species and habitats from the microscopic level to the gigantic. Comparing forests in the Pacific Northwestern United States and Southeastern mainland of Australia, the authors show how easily observable species – trees and mammals – are part of a complicated infrastructure that includes fungi, lichens, and organisms invisible to the naked eye, such as microbes. This book shows how easily observable species are part of a complicated infrastructure. It also shows that forests are far more complicated, which means simplistic policies will not save them. Understanding the biophysical intricacies of our life-support systems just might.
