‘Read this book, then look and wonder’ Sunday Times We have to learn to live as part of nature, not apart from it. And the first step is to start looking after the insects, the little creatures that make our shared world go round. Insects are essential for life as we know it – without them, our world would look vastly different. Drawing on the latest ground-breaking research and a lifetime’s study, Dave Goulson reveals the long decline of insect populations that has taken place in recent decades and its potential consequences. Eye-opening and inspiring, Silent Earth asks for profound change at every level and a passionate argument or us to love, respect and care for our six-legged friends. ‘Compelling – Silent Earth is a wake-up call’ Isabella Tree, author of Wilding’Enlightening, urgent and funny, Goulson’s book is a timely call for action’ New Statesman
