Résumé

How Nature Keeps Us Alive.
The second book by internationally bestselling author of Extraordinary Insects.
We need nature and wouldn''t be able to survive without the miraculous functions it performs constantly, most of which we are unaware of. Trees clean air and water, hoverflies and bees pollinate our crops, the kingfisher inspired the construction of high-speed trains among many other things.
In this book, Anne Sverdrup-Thygeson will explain how closely we are all connected with nature, highlighting the connections between nature''s finely knit system and our everyday lives. At the heart of the narrative is ''Nature''s Life-Support System,'' a collective term that describes all the goods and services we receive from nature - like food, fresh water, medicine, pollination, pollution control, carbon sequestration, erosion prevention, recreation, spiritual health and more.
