            This book is about the biology of New Zealand explored from the perspective of evolutionary ecology. The unconventional style informs in an accessible way about New Zealand species, their interactions and their origins. Recognisable focal plants and animals form the starting poin...t in each chapter highlighting a different type of creature and different biological processes. Aspects of New Zealand's evolutionary environment considered in the book range from plate tectonics to species diversity to sexual selection to predator avoidance. The narrative weaves through twelve chapters details of the universal mechanisms of nature in the setting of Aotearoa, with a common thread of change, which is a feature of life on Earth. The last chapter considers recent changes that humanity has made on the natural environment.

            Fungi are essential to all life on Earth and yet fungal diseases lead to over one million deaths each year. How can we strike a better balance with our microbial cousins? These remarkable microbes enrich our lives- from releasing the carbon in plants, to producing life-changing m...edicine, to adding umami flavour and B vitamins to our food. But not all fungi are good for us. This compelling book from esteemed mycologist Keith Seifert ventures into our homes, bodies, farms, and forests to profile the fungi that inhabit our environments. Drawing from the latest research, he explains where fungi came from and how yeast, lichens, and moulds have evolved and adapted over millions of years. The Hidden Kingdom of Fungi urges us to better understand our relationship with fungi, while revealing their world in all its beautiful complexity.

            Jungle is a new and ambitious history of the world, telling the remarkable story of the world's tropical forests from the arrival of the first plants millions of years ago to the role of tropical forests in the evolution of the world's atmosphere, the dinosaurs, the first mammals... and even our own species and ancestors. Highlighting provocative new evidence garnered from cutting-edge research, Dr Roberts shows, for example, that our view of humans as 'savannah specialists' is wildly wrong, and that the 'Anthropocene' began not with the Industrial Revolution, but potentially as early as 6,000 years ago in the tropics. We see that the relationship between humankind and 'jungles' is deep-rooted, that we are all connected to their destruction, and that we must all act to save them. Urgent, clear-sighted and original, Jungle challenges the way we think about the world - and ourselves.

            One January morning in 1734, cloth merchant Peter Collinson hurried down to the docks at London's Custom House to collect cargo just arrived from John Bartram in the American colonies. But it was not bales of cotton that awaited him, but plants and seeds.

            Plants evolved seeds to hack time. Thanks to seeds they can cast their genes forward into the future, enabling species to endure across seasons, years, and occasionally millennia. When a 2000-year-old extinct date palm seed was discovered, no one expected it to still be alive. Bu...t it sprouted a healthy young date palm. That seeds produced millennia ago could still be viable today suggests seeds are capable of extreme lifespans. Yet many seeds, including those crucial to our everyday lives, don't live very long at all. In The Age of Seeds Fiona McMillan-Webster tells the astonishing story of seed longevity, the crucial role they play in our everyday lives, and what that might mean for our future.
