I recently mentioned that forest biologist Nalini Nadkarni is publishing a new book, Between Earth and Sky: Our Intimate Connections with Trees.
Between Earth and Sky is an excellent book discussing the enormous variety of connections between trees and people. How do I know it's such a great book? Because I have had the honor to work as her research assistant in preparing Between Earth and Sky, as well as the opportunity to study with her while I was a student at The Evergreen State College.
Imagine my excitement this morning when I found this YouTube special composed by Frank Andersen. "Temple Talk" documents Nalini's presentation on trees and spirituality at the Olympia Zen Center in Olympia, Washington.
As a scientist, Nalini shows a remarkable ability to explore forest ecology from many different perspectives. Take a few minutes to enjoy her presentation for a sneak preview of her book, as Nalini Nadkarni explores just one of the many connections between trees, forests, and all us humans.
