In ‘Entangled Life’, Merlin Sheldrake takes us on a mind-altering journey into their spectacular world, and reveals how these extraordinary organisms transform our understanding of our planet and life itself. This illustrated edition features over 100 full-colour images, showcasing this wondrous and wildly various lifeform as never before.
