NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER * From the world's leading forest ecologist who forever changed how people view trees and their connections to one another and to other living things in the forest--a moving, deeply personal journey of discovery Suzanne Simard is a pioneer on the frontier of plant communication and intelligence; she's been compared to Rachel Carson, hailed as a scientist who conveys complex, technical ideas in a way that is dazzling and profound. Her work has influenced filmmakers (the Tree of Souls of James Cameron's Avatar) and her TED talks have been viewed by more than 10 million people worldwide. Now, in her first book, Simard brings us into her world, the intimate world of the trees, in which she brilliantly illuminates the fascinating and vital truths--that trees are not simply the source of timber or pulp, but are a complicated, interdependent circle of life; that forests are social, cooperative creatures connected through underground networks by which trees communicate their vitality and vulnerabilities with communal lives not that different from our own. Simard writes--in inspiring, illuminating, and accessible ways--how trees, living side by side for hundreds of years, have evolved, how they perceive one another, learn and adapt their behaviors, recognize neighbors, and remember the past; how they have agency about the future; elicit warnings and mount defenses, compete and cooperate with one another with sophistication, characteristics ascribed to human intelligence, traits that are the essence of civil societies--and at the center of it all, the Mother Trees: the mysterious, powerful forces that connect and sustain the others that surround them. Simard writes of her own life, born and raised into a logging world in the rainforests of British Columbia, of her days as a child spent cataloging the trees from the forest and how she came to love and respect them--embarking on a journey of discovery, and struggle. And as she writes of her scientific quest, she writes of her own journey--of love and loss, of observation and change, of risk and reward, making us understand how deeply human scientific inquiry exists beyond data and technology, that it is about understanding who we are and our place in the world, and, in writing of her own life, we come to see the true connectedness of the Mother Tree that nurtures the forest in the profound ways that families and human societies do, and how these inseparable bonds enable all our survival.… (més)

Suzanne Simard, la experta mundial en ecología forestal, nos propone un viaje de descubrimiento conmovedor y profundamente personal que cambiará para siempre la forma en que vemos los árboles y todos los otros seres vivos del bosque.
Suzanne Simard, experta mundial en ecología forestal, nos presenta en este libro la vida secreta de los árboles y nos revela un hecho fascinante: los árboles no son simplemente una fuente de madera, sino que pertenecen a un complejo circuito de vida interdependiente. En el bosque, los árboles se comportan como criaturas sociales y cooperativas conectadas a través de redes subterráneas a través de las cuales se comunican su vitalidad y sus vulnerabilidades, y tienen vidas comunitarias no muy diferentes de las nuestras.

Con un estilo claro y accesible, la autora nos explica cómo durante cientos de años los árboles han evolucionado: se perciben unos a otros, aprenden y adaptan sus comportamientos, reconocen a los vecinos y recuerdan el pasado. Los árboles, nos revela Simard, pueden tomar decisiones sobre el futuro, advertir de peligros y montar defensas, y competir y cooperar entre sí con sofisticación; comportamientos todos ellos atribuidos a la inteligencia humana y que son la esencia de las sociedades civiles. Pero el descubrimiento más relevante de Simard es la existencia de las Madres árbol: las fuerzas misteriosas y poderosas que desde el centro del bosque conectan y sostienen a todos los que las rodean.
