            Our senses are very limited compared to those of other species; some animals see ultraviolet light, communicate using electricity, or navigate long distances with magnetic information. Martin Stevens discusses the remarkable senses in nature and what they are used for, uncovering... how they work and how they are shaped by ecology and the environment.

            For readers of Entangled Life and The Hidden Life of Trees, a fascinating journey into the world of plants and animals, and the ways they communicate with each other. In forests, fields, and even gardens, there is a constant exchange of information going on. Animals and plants mu...st communicate with one another to survive, but they also tell lies, set traps, talk to themselves, and speak to each other in a variety of unexpected ways. Here, behavioural biologist Madlen Ziege reveals the fascinating world of nonhuman communication. In charming, humorous, and accessible prose, she shows how nature's language can help us to understand our own place in the natural world a little better. 'It's always amazing how talkative nature is - very enlightening and entertaining!' -Peter Wohlleben, author of The Hidden Life of Trees 'In accessible language Ziege reports on fascinatingly clever chemical communication among bacteria; tells how wild rabbits coordinate and how badgers warn their enemies ... Mushrooms set traps, fish lie, and fox and fir tree say goodnight. Illuminating brain food.' -O news 'In the forest and in your own garden, things are ... anything but quiet and calm, as Madlen Ziege, in a light and entertaining way, and using astonishing scientific knowledge, shows us.' -Kronen Zeitung

            'Remarkable. If only every endangered species had a guardian angel as impassioned, courageous and pragmatic as Jonathan Slaght' Isabella Tree, author of Wilding 'Gripping' Dave Goulson, author of A Sting in the Tale Primorye, a remote forested region near to where Russia, China a...nd North Korea meet in a tangle of barbed wire, is the only place where brown bears, tigers and leopards co-exist. It is also home to one of nature's rarest birds, the Blakiston's fish owl. A chance encounter with this huge, strange bird was to change wildlife researcher Jonathan C. Slaght's life beyond measure. This is the story of Slaght's quest to safeguard the elusive owl from extinction. During months-long journeys covering thousands of miles, he has pursued it through its forbidding territory. He has spent time with the Russians who struggle on in the harsh conditions of the taiga forest. And he has observed how Russia's logging interests and evolving fortunes present new threats to the owl's survival. Preserving its habitats will secure the forest for future generations, both animal and human - but can this battle be won? Exhilarating and clear-sighted, Owls of the Eastern Ice is an impassioned reflection on our relationship with the natural world and on what it means to devote one's career to a single pursuit. 'Slaght makes the people, wildlife and landscape of the Russian Far East come alive. I haven't enjoyed a book on remote Russia as much as this since Ian Frazier's Travels in Siberia' Sophy Roberts, author of The Lost Pianos of Siberia 'True epic.

            Unlock the secret code of cats for a deeper connection with the feline in your life. Why does my cat always want to sleep on my keyboard? How can I stop them bullying the dog? This ised to be their favourite food and now they won't touch it! Do they even like me? If you've ever w...ondered, as they sit on your head at 4am, what on earth is going on beyond your cat's inscrutable gaze, this book has the answers. Drawing on extensive animal behaviour psychology and the latest research, it reveals what's really behind those things cats do - whether they're amusing, endearing, or just downright bizarre. Cats may not telegraph their emotions (unlike the dogs they look down on!) but they do show their feelings, often quite subtly, in the way they relate to you, other animals, and their home environment. With gorgeous and accurate illustrations, this book helps you to read and interpret your cat's body language and behaviours, so you'll know when they're confident and contented, and when they're telling you that something's not right. Advanced Catwatching features put the spotlight on key behaviours such as sofa-scratching, while strategic Survival Guides offer five top tips for successfully managing challenges such as moving house, or introducing a new cat into the family. What's My Cat Thinking? will deepen your understanding of your cat's needs and wants and strengthen the unique connection between you. So when they give you that 4am wake-up call, at least you'll know why.
