Trees are one of humanity's most constant and most varied companions. From India's sacred banyan tree to the fragrant cedar of Lebanon, they offer us sanctuary and inspiration - not to mention the raw materials for everything from aspirin to maple syrup. In 'Around the World in 80 Trees', expert Jonathan Drori uses plant science to illuminate how trees play a role in every part of human life, from the romantic to the regrettable.
