Description: Biologist David Haskell uses a one-square-meter patch of old-growth Tennessee forest as a window into the ecology and evolution of North American forests. Visiting it almost daily for one year to trace nature's path through the seasons, he brings the forest and its inhabitants to vivid life in his book, The Forest Unseen: A Year's Watch in Nature, and in this talk, which offers scientific insights into the workings of forests and personal reflections on the practice of close observation of nature. A book signing will follow.
