The Web of Nature

nature“The Invention of Nature” by Andrea Wulf recounts the remarkable life of biologist Alexander Von Humboldt, arguably our first ecologist.  His expeditions into the depths of Russia and South America were the stuff legend.  But what really marked his importance was his understanding of the interconnectedness of nature—the animated, interactive forces of life that bound organisms in a “net-like intricate fabric.”   “Wulf’s pulsating account brings this dazzling figure back into a dazzling, much-deserved focus (Boston Globe).”
