From Indian vultures to Chinese bees, nature provides 'natural services', 24/7. Yet we take most of nature's services for granted, imagining them free and limitless - until they suddenly switch off. This book is full of immediate, impactful stories, containing both warnings (such as in the tale of India's vultures, killed off by drugs given to cattle, leading to an epidemic of rabies) but also the positive (how birds protect the Dutch apple harvest, or the Amazon rainforests evaporate 20 billion tonnes of water each day).
