On October 14, 2021 Exective Director Meg Lowman’s recent memoir The Arbornaut: A Life Discovering the Eighth Continent in the Trees Above Us was featured in an interview with Jane Goodall titled How Books Led a Young Jane Goodall to Live Among the Chimps by The New York Times in a series called “By The Book.” Below is an excerpt from the article:

Interviewer: “What’s the most interesting thing you learned from a book recently?”

Jane Goodall: “The ability of trees to communicate with each other by means of an underground network of their roots and the fungal threads attached to them. I’m longing to know more about the amazing ecosystem of a forest canopy. Meg Lowman recently gave me a copy of “The Arbornaut.” So far I’ve only read the prologue and Chapter 1, but I wrote about her amazing discoveries in my last book, “Seeds of Hope.” And here I might add that I learned so many things, so much that was new to me, about the amazing vegetable kingdom when researching that book.”
