Life in the forest, day and night, over the course of a whole year – it’s all here on view, on a concertina poster five foot wide, that comes with the book. You can follow the vegetation cycle of the plants throughout the year and watch the animals day and night.
The trees of the forest live a long time, but eventually they die. As do many other plants and animals that live with the trees and through them as well. Flowering plants, ferns, moss and mushrooms and animals such as insects, lizards and rodents, vegetarians and carnivores, make up the forest’s ecosystem. Insects pollinate the flowers and blossoms, but they can also harm the forest as pests, such as the bark beetle. Microscopic fungi and bacteria are among the organisms that the forest needs to survive, but they can also kill it. But no creature has a more powerful impact on the sensitive ecosystem of a forest than man. Wholesale clearing and vast timber plantations jeopardize the life cycle and the variety of species whereas prudent care and attention can do much to recover much-needed living space for the forest, restoring the forest-dwellers to their natural habitat.Download the factsheet with all specifications
