DIANA BERESFORD-KROEGER is a scientist and author who possesses a unique combination of western scientific training and traditional and indigenous ways with which she works to bring a better understanding and appreciation of the scientific complexities of nature to the general public. Her concept of bioplanning challenges ordinary people to develop a new relationship with nature, to view the environment as a biological system and to perform the ecological task of replanting the global forest.
A feature documentary about her work, Call of the Forest: The Forgotten Wisdom of Trees, appeared in 2017. Her most recent book is To Speak for the Trees, published in 2019. Her other books include The Sweetness of a Simple Life, The Global Forest, Arboretum Borealis: A Lifeline of the Planet, Arboretum America, and A Garden for Life. Beresford-Kroeger was inducted as a Wings Worldquest fellow in 2010, she was elected as a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society in 2011, and in 2016 the Society named her one of 25 women explorers of Canada.
