Today, the human relationship with Antarctica is defined by scientific endeavour, international collaboration and luxury tourism. The bicentenary of the first human sighting of Antarctica is an opportunity to reflect on our Antarctic legacy as the latest scientific research reveals the startling impacts that climate change in Antarctica could have on a global scale. Discover this remarkable continent covered in ice, where days endure for months, highways are built by penguins and shimmering lights illuminate the night sky.

            We are not alone: plants make up 80 per cent of the total biomass of Earth, while humans are only 0.0001 per cent. The forest is an intimate part of our lives and continues to play a central role in creating a liveable planet. From making the air we breathe and the climate tolera...ble to providing endless resources for shelter and food, forests have been with us for almost 400 million years and, despite our worst efforts, will be here after we have gone. Showcasing the work of leading nature photographers, The Life & Love of the Forest is a visual tour of our most remarkable woodlands. Bestselling author Lewis Blackwell takes us on a fascinating journey with evocative essays and insightful captions, exploring the developing science and curious histories of everything from microscopic life and the many animals through to the largest living things on the planet: the amazing trees that are the core engineering and architecture of the forest. Capturing the beauty of these magnificent and vital landscapes, this book celebrates the essential qualities of forests around the world while also promoting a future where humans and nature can coexist.
