In this wonderful book researcher Nardi (biology, Univ. of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign; Life in the Soil) depicts the fascinating story of the world that exists on, inside, below, and outside of a tree. This contributes not only to vivid details about the survival and quality of life of a tree but, ultimately, the effects on the environment and consequently the standard of living for people. Researched thoroughly and full of clear illustrations and details that will satisfy any biologist, this timely and beautifully written work has the potential of enlightening potential learners on all levels about the intricate world of microbial life and the myriad of creatures and critters that interwork to contribute to the survival of all of Earth’s species.
VERDICT This one belongs in every academic library and in most public libraries. Highly recommended.
