How natural is nature? How wild is wilderness?
Forget about wilderness, Tim Low says - nature lives here in our cities and gardens, exploiting everything we do, forging new connections with us. Endangered species are turning up in industrial zones. In our forests, native pests, including lyrebirds and rainforest trees, are now a force to reckon with. Sheep are being kept in some national parks to save rare birds and plants. We need to know why.
'The New Nature' shows that:
- wildlife welcomes our sewage
- rare animals need weeds
- wildlife-friendly gardening is not so friendly
Tim Low's groundbreaking book will change your view of nature.
