“[Robert B.] Parker's brilliance is in his simple dialogue, and in Spenser.”—The Philadelphia Inquirer A bitter divorce is only the beginning. First the father hires thugs to kidnap his son. Then the mother hires Spenser to get the boy back. But as soon as Spenser senses the lay of the land, he decides to do some kidnapping of his own. With a contract out on his life, he heads for the Maine woods, determined to give a puny 15 year old a crash course in survival and to beat his dangerous opponents at their own brutal game.

Book Short Summary:

"Sanctuary Almanac brings into the new millennium the finest nature writing in the grand tradition of William Bartram, Henry David Thoreau, and John Burroughs-the pursuit of natural history in the original Greek sense of historyas an inquiryinto nature. Jim Stapleton probes, reflects, and fully immerses himself in the natural world in such a transformative way that every day becomes joyously revelatory. The startling originality of his observations makes us feel whisked onto a newly discovered planet that happens to be named Earth." - Frank Bergon, author of Shoshone Mikeand editor of The Wilderness Reader "I love it ....what a delightful tour Jim Stapleton gives of life through the seasons at the Slabsides Sanctuary of writer-naturalist John Burroughs. In upstate New York, nestled between the Hudson and the Catskills, Jim is witness to the seasons, marking time with all the life that swirls about him. Any reader of this Almanac will inevitably become more observant (and protective) of the Sanctuaries around and within each of us." - Donald Kroodsma, author of The Singing Life of Birds "Sanctuary Almanacis a true delight, a personal phenology with all the charm and power of John Burroughs' own essays. Stapleton has written an elegant, good-hearted, and nuanced portrait of a natural history shrine. Readers will come away with a new and clearer way of seeing their own place." - Robert Michael Pyle, author of Sky TIme in Gray's River "Hearing a faint scream in the blue Hudson Valley sky, I glance up from my work in the wood yard ..the red-shouldered hawks are back!"And with them, spring returns to the John Burroughs Sanctuary, a 180-acre nature preserve nestled in the gently rolling hills of West Park, NY, where Jim Stapleton was resident naturalist for a decade. In Sanctuary Almanac, Stapleton takes the reader on a fascinating ramble through the natural year at the reserve: How does it feel to fly like a March crow? Or quake like an aspen tree? What state of mind does an accident victim share with a wounded muskrat? Jim Stapleton outlines a tidy cottage industry using chickadee labor and an age-old marking technique to save wildlife from leg-hold traps. Equal parts natural history, meditation on 'sanctuary', and personal memoir, Sanctuary Almanac is an enchanting walk! ABOUT THE AUTHOR As a young boy growing up in Toledo, Ohio in the 1940's, Jim Stapleton was fascinated by how things work. This preoccupation eventually led him to Gottingen, West Germany and a degree in theoretical physics.He returned to the U.S.in 1962 and spent the next eight years as a hermit in Pennsylvania's Allegheny Mountains. Moving on, he worked on a series of farms, settled in the Mid-Hudson Valley, and pursued advanced degrees in biology and environmental science. In the 1980's he taught at various colleges (Bard, Vassar, and the New School for Social Research); and helped found Hudsonia, a not-for-profit environmental research institute. Stapleton now writes plays -Henry & Emily, an imagined encounter between Thoreau & Dickinson, Playing for Keeps, a love story, Tango As-If. He lives on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington with his wife, Diana Bigelow."

  • Pdf File: leafy-salad-vegetables.pdf

Book Short Summary:

Leafy salad vegetables are among the most universally used vegetable crops grown today. Their prominence as important crops has been heightened through the last several decades due to an awareness on the part of consumers of the nutrient, and other obvious values they offer to the diet as "fresh greens" which, at least in the United States, have become a daily table staple. As a result, acreage planted to leafy salad vegetable crops has expanded to a remarkable degree over the past few decades, making these crops an important segment of the agricultural and marketing industries. Published information on leafy salad vegetables has been-and is widespread and scattered. This book brings together all up-to-date information and is amply referenced throughout for further study and information. Similarities and differences among the species are discussed and provide insight into the place these species hold in the world cropping system and in the human diet. This approach in text organiza tion was made in an effort to be helpful to the widest type of readership: professional researchers and teachers, graduate and undergraduate stu dents, extension workers, farmers and other members of the horticultural community, and, perhaps, even lay readers who are the ultimate consumers.

POLAR NIGHT Marine Ecology

  • Pdf File: polar-night-marine-ecology.pdf

Book Short Summary:

Until recently, the prevailing view of marine life at high latitudes has been that organisms enter a general resting state during the dark Polar Night and that the system only awakens with the return of the sun. Recent research, however, with coordinated, multidisciplinary field campaigns based on the high Arctic Archipelago of Svalbard, have provided a radical new perspective. Instead of a system in dormancy, a new perspective of a system in full operation and with high levels of activity across all major phyla is emerging. Examples of such activities and processes include: Active marine organisms at sea surface, water column and the sea-floor. At surface we find active foraging in seabirds and fish, in the water column we find a high biodiversity and activity of zooplankton and larvae such as active light induced synchronized diurnal vertical migration, and at seafloor there is a high biodiversity in benthic animals and macroalgae. The Polar Night is a period for reproduction in many benthic and pelagic taxa, mass occurrence of ghost shrimps (Caprellides), high abundance of Ctenophores, physiological evidence of micro- and macroalgal cells that are ready to utilize the first rays of light when they appear, deep water fishes found at water surface in the Polar night, and continuous growth of bivalves throughout the winter. These findings not only begin to shape a new paradigm for marine winter ecology in the high Arctic, but also provide conclusive evidence for a top-down controlled system in which primary production levels are close to zero. In an era of environmental change that is accelerated at high latitudes, we believe that this new insight is likely to strongly impact how the scientific community views the high latitude marine ecosystem. Despite the overwhelming darkness, the main environmental variable affecting marine organisms in the Polar Night is in fact light. The light regime during the Polar Night is unique with respect to light intensity, spectral composition of light and photoperiod.

Book Short Summary:

Typically, vegetable gardening is about the long view: peas sown in spring aren't harvested until summer, and tomatoes started indoors in February can't be eaten until July. But it's not true for all plants. Some things can be planted and eaten in weeks, days, even hours. The Speedy Vegetable Garden highlights more than 50 quick crops, with complete information on how to sow, grow, and harvest each plant, and sumptuous photography that provides inspiration and a visual guide for when to harvest. In addition to instructions for growing, it also provides recipes that highlight each crop’s unique flavor, like Chickpea sprout hummus, stuffed tempura zucchini flowers, and a paella featuring calendula. Sprouted seeds are the fastest. Microgreens can be harvested in weeks: cilantro, 14 days after planting; arugula and fennel in 10 days. And a handful of vegetable varieties grow more quickly than their slower relatives, like dwarf French beans (60 days), cherry tomatoes (65 days), and early potatoes (75 days). The Speedy Vegetable Garden puts fresh, seed-to-table food at your fingertips, fast!

Book Short Summary:

This book contains the papers presented at a NATO Advanced Research Institute on "Mediterranean Marine Ecosystems", held at Heraklion-Crete, Greece, from September 23-27, 1983. A workshop rather than a conference, it was sponsored by the Eco-Sciences Special Programme Panel, in cooperation with the Marine Science Panel. The third of its kind, it was scheduled in the framework of a project on a multidisciplinary integrated approach to the study of the Mediterranean. This Sea and the surrounding land was not only the cradle of many civilizations but is, up to the present time, one of the major world areas of marine traffic, communication and exchanges, fisheries and aquacultures, inshore human activities and ••• pollu tion. To a certain degree it constitutes a gigantic natural labo ratory, where the fate of threatened aquatic and terrestrial eco systems including the human one, is tested. The Mediterranean Sea, with its geological history and present day geographic, hydrological and climatic conditions is believed to form an ecological entity. Important exchanges and mutual influences take place with the surrounding land area and the water masses, naturally (Atlantic, Black Sea) or artificially (Red Sea), connected to the Mediterranean. Therefore, a better and in-depth knowledge of the various ecosystems, benthic, planktonic and nektonic, neritic or pelagic, in the Western or the Eastern Basin seems to be a pre requisite to any action in preserving, upgrading and managing the natural resources of the area.

Book Short Summary:

The Iberian Peninsula is one of Europe's most ornithologically varied regions offering a host of regional specialities. It includes famous birding hotspots such as the Coto Donaña wetlands, mountainous areas such as the Picos de Europa and the Pyrenees, the Mediterranean cork and holm oak forests of the southwest, the migration crossroads of the Strait of Gibraltar and the steppe-like plains of Extremadura and Alentejo. Large numbers of birders from around Europe visit the region to see this wealth of winged wildlife, but to date there has been no comprehensive regional avifauna in English. Birds of the Iberian Peninsula is a national avifauna that fills this gap in the ornithological literature. Full-colour throughout, the book begins with authoritative introductory chapters covering subjects such as geography, climate, habitats, the history of Iberian ornithology and the composition of the avifauna. The species accounts then cover every species recorded in mainland Spain, the Balearic Islands, Portugal, Gibraltar and Andorra, including the many vagrants. For each species there is detailed treatment of distribution – with maps of breeding and wintering ranges – habitat selection, population trends, historical and current status, migration and conservation.

Book Short Summary:

SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2017 MAN BOOKER PRIZE A NEW YORK TIMES AND GUARDIAN BEST BOOK OF 2017 Autumn. Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness. That’s what it felt like for Keats in 1819. How about Autumn 2016? Daniel is a century old. Elisabeth, born in 1984, has her eye on the future. The United Kingdon is in pieces, divided by a historic, once-in-a-generation summer. Love is won, love is lost. Hope is hand-in-hand with hopelessness. The seasons roll round, as ever. Ali Smith’s new novel is a meditation on a world growing ever more bordered and exclusive, on what richness and worth are, on what harvest means. It is the first installment of her Seasonal quartet—four stand-alone books, seperate yet interconnected and cyclical (as the seasons are)—and it casts an eye over our own time. Who are we? What are we made of? Shakespearean jeu d’esprit, Keatsian melancholy, the sheer bright energy of 1960s pop art: the centuries cast their eyes over our own history making. Here’s where we’re living. Here’s time at its more contemporaneous and its most cyclic. From the imagination of the peerless Ali Smith comes a shape-shifting series, wide-ranging in time-scale and light-footed through histories, a story about aging and time and love and stories themselves.
