Eine kurze Geschichte der Menschheit

Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.

Gardens mean different things to different people. For some, they are merely another room, an outdoor extension to the house. For others, they are places of relaxation that provide an escape from the outside world. But for most garden owners, the relationship with their plot of land is much more than simply passive: passionate and committed, they enjoy gardening for its own sake, and part of the fun is the prospect of connecting with nature, be it with the plants they cultivate and nurture or with the diverse native wildlife that finds its way into their gardens. This comprehensive photographic guide helps nature enthusiasts to identify the native plants and animals they come across in their gardens, be they welcome or otherwise. Learning about any given species' requirements and its role in garden ecology will allow gardeners to adapt their approach to gardening, enabling them to encourage wildlife while also protecting plants from damage. This reference includes birds, mammals, insects, spiders, trees, wildflowers, fungi, and pond life, along with features on bird nests and eggs and tracks, trails, and signs. Detailed photographs and species descriptions help readers identify each species quickly and easily.

Engage with the intelligence of nature to discover your unique role and deepen your spiritual path on Earth • Presents practical ways to rekindle your connection with nature and open up to plant consciousness as a way to enrich your spiritual path • Offers guidance on how to meet plant allies with wisdom teachings specific to you and your path • Provides over 40 exercises, including shamanic journeys, as well as links to digital downloads for a shamanic drumming track and guided meditations As our lives become more absorbed in screen time rather than the great outdoors, it feels essential to open up our senses again to the riches of nature, reestablishing our connection with the heartbeat of the Earth. In this book, Fay Johnstone provides a road map for bridging the gap between plants and people, allowing our sacred relationship with the Green Kingdom to be restored. Fay shows how to confidently meet, explore, and build relationships with key plant allies to enjoy a more balanced connection with yourself and your environment. Sharing her passion for the plant world, she provides a practical guide to rekindling your connection with nature, opening up to plant consciousness as a way to enrich your path and weave the enchantment of nature back into your own life. She includes more than 40 simple, practical exercises and meditations to guide you on a heart-centered journey of transformation and commune with the environment, the seasons, the cycles of the moon, and the Earth Heart. Addressing plants as conscious beings we meet their spirit, while at the same time aligning with our own true nature and sense of purpose as a creature of this Earth. The book also introduces the shamanic practice of plant spirit healing, emphasizing that ceremony begins at home with our local plants, rather than with the famous plant healers of the Amazon. Guided meditations and shamanic journeys enable a deeper exploration and interaction with the spirit of plants for healing and support. The author offers practical advice on how to initiate a conversation with plants and meet a plant ally with wisdom teachings specific to you and your path. Whether you explore your back garden, office plants, or morning cup of tea, Fay reveals how to introduce the magic of plants into your daily routine and appreciate the important role plants play. Reaching out to interact with nature is a step forward not only on your personal journey to wholeness but also toward healing our Earth.

Der britische Biologe Dave Goulson unternimmt eine Expedition auf den Planeten der Insekten – genauer auf die Blumenwiesen rund um sein marodes französisches Landhaus. Die Helden seiner Feldforschungsabenteuer sind nicht nur Bienen und Hummeln, sondern alles, was kreucht und fleucht: Grillen, Grashüpfer, Glühwürmchen – und Libellen, denen beim Liebemachen zuzusehen eine Freude ist. Goulson taucht dabei so tief ins Reich der Tiere ein wie kaum jemand zuvor. Ein Buch, das die entscheidende Bedeutung von Insekten für unsere Umwelt und das ganze globale Ökosystem beleuchtet. Und ein Weckruf, die Nutzung von Insektiziden zurückzufahren, um das Sterben der Bienen und anderer Bestäuber zu stoppen.
