The Fish in the Forest: Salmon and the Web of Life


The Fish within the Forest is an elegantly written, fantastically illustrated exploration of the advanced net of relationships among the salmon of the Pacific Northwest and the encircling environment. Dale Stokes indicates how approximately all elements of this fragile ecosystem—from streambeds to treetops, from sea urchins to orcas to bears, from rain forests to kelp forests—are in detail associated with the biology of the Pacific salmon. Illustrated with 70 wonderful colour pictures by means of document White, The Fish within the Forest demonstrates how the biking of food among the sea and the land, mediated via the lifestyles and loss of life of the salmon, is not just key to knowing the panorama of the north Pacific coast, yet can also be a strong metaphor for all of lifestyles on earth.
