This month's title is The Arbornaut: A Life Discovering the Eighth Continent in the Trees Above Us by Meg Lowman
Summary: "Biologist, botanist, and conservationist Meg Lowman-aka "Canopy Meg"-takes us on an adventure into the "eighth continent" of the world's treetops, along her journey as a tree scientist, and into climate action"-- Provided by publisher.
As a graduate student exploring the rain forests of Australia, Lowman sewed a harness from an old seat belt, gathered hundreds of feet of rope, and found a tool belt for her pencils and rulers. Up she went, into the trees., in order to be a better monitor. Over the years she planned one of the first treetop walkways, and helped create more of these bridges through the eighth continent all over the world. Here she launches us into the life and work of an ecologist and conservationist, and offers hope, specific plans, and recommendations for actions that will make an immediate and lasting impact against climate change." -- adapted from jacket
