Truffles, and Beasts: How Forests Function.
Maser, Andrew W. Claridge, and James M. Trappe. This book makes a compelling case that there's much more to forests than meets the eye. Comparing forests in the Northwestern United States and the Southeastern mainland of Australia, it shows how easily observable species – trees and mammals – are part of a complicated structure that includes fungi, lichens, and organisms invisible to the naked eye. It shows that forests are far more complicated than most of us think, and that while simplistic policies will not save them, understanding their biophysical interconnections just might. More
