Around the World in 80 Trees, By Jonathan Drori, illustrations by Lucille Clerc, Laurence King Publishing, 2018, hardcover, 256 pages

Jonathan Drori, a trustee of the Eden Project and an ambassador for the Worldwide Fund for Nature, gives us a tour of trees from around the world in this beautifully illustrated book. He weaves accessible and up-to-date plant science with folklore and history to show how trees play a role in human lives, as well as those of birds and other wildlife. His subjects include familiar species like the sugar maple to exotic trees, including Australia’s Wollemi pine.
