The Songs of Trees: Stories from Nature's Great Connectors - Arnold Arboretum - Lecture

Wednesday, April 12, 2017

David George Haskell, PhD, Professor of Biology, Sewanee, The University of the South

Award-winning teacher and writer David George Haskell expands his focus from one square meter (The Forest Unseen) to the expansive networked communities of life as observed in the presence of trees around the world. A keen observer of all living things, Haskell brings together ecological understanding with poetic narrative as he describes discoveries from root to branch tip, from one specimen to a forest of collaborators.

Join us as Haskell expounds upon webs of connections that weave through the environment, human nature, science, and ethics.

His book, The Songs of Trees, will be available for purchase and signing.
