Montgomery and Bikle

[tabs style=”default”] [tab title=”Details”]

Microbes are all around us. From the plants in our backyards to the lining of the human gut, these minuscule bacteria are essential to all living things. For UW geologist David Montgomery and environmental planner Anne Biklé, this was certainly true when they reconstituted their barren backyard with organic matter. The Hidden Half of Nature is an exploration of their experiences–not just their gardening expertise, but also a “thoughtful discussion” of Biklé’s cancer diagnosis and subsequent connections between what we eat and how healthy we are. For the launch of their book, they’ll explore the connections between what we eat (and, more importantly, what the microbes we consume also eat) in a discussion of the many ways the planet’s smallest inhabitants change the course of all life forms.
