    Book summary:

    A new paradigm for environmentally sound construction. A source of inspiration for those concerned for the environment. Audubon House Audubon House tells the story of how a dedicated team of architects, environmentalists, engineers, research scientists, interior designers, and contractors transformed a 19th-century structure in downtown Manhattan into one of the most energy-efficient, environmentally-responsible office buildings ever designed. Sixty percent more energy efficient than a conventional office building, built at market cost using only off-the-shelf technology and materials, and supporting an extraordinarily healthy office environment, Audubon House has been hailed as the antidote for many of this century's unhealthy and inefficient building practices. Richly illustrated with professional photographs and architectural drawings, Audubon House is both a working model for building professionals and an affirmation of the belief that we can alter our destructive environmental course without sacrificing economic competitiveness. Advance Praise for Audubon House "Audubon House illustrates a shining example of the future of architecture: a future where energy efficiency and the preservation of natural, historic, and human resources are the key to creating spaces that are cost-effective, healthy, beautiful, and magical." --Amory B. Lovins Director of Research, Rocky Mountain Institute "The Audubon House is an embodiment of the hope that humanity will find its proper place within the natural world. What a delight that this practical model can be shared so thoroughly and splendidly. I applaud this important contribution to the art of design for sustainability and encourage one and all to enjoy its inspiration." --William McDonough, AIA Principal, William McDonough Architects Author of The Hannover Principles--Design for Sustainability "A fine book. This shows it can be done--efficiency does not mean a retreat to a lower quality of life." --Dr. Paul R. Ehrlich Bing Professor of Population Studies Department of Biological Sciences Stanford University "A very model of a guide to a major modern building! At last we have the book on the building that shows us what sustainable architecture is and should be." --Jon and Alex Naar, authors of This Land Is Your Land: A Guide to North America's Endangered Ecosystems

    Book summary:

    What is a mammal? You'll know the answer after reading the introductory section of this excellent guide. You'll also know what you need to study our warm-blooded cousins--where they live, what they eat, how they reproduce, and what a caribou has in common with a gray whale. Once you've got your basic mammalogy down, you can start looking for the mammals shown in the book's field identification section in the mountains, in ponds and streams, and in your own backyard. Major types of North American mammals are included, from pronghorn antelope to long-tailed weasels, Virginia opossum to West Indian manatee. A reference section defines terms and offers more resources about mammals, and a waterproof spotting card tucked in the back is great for rainy days. Like all the guides in this series (Wildflowers, Insects, Birds, Rocks and Minerals, and Weather), this First Field Guide to mammals is a great family resource, perfect for kids and adults. (Ages 8 and up). --Therese Littleton

    Book summary:

    With its colorful coral reefs, excellent birding, and tropical temperatures, Florida remains a popular vacation spot for the ecologically minded. In this concisely detailed volume you'll become acquainted with the state's geologic origins, natural history, and diverse habitats (salt marshes, mangrove swamps, prairies, and woodlands). A field guide assists in the identification of some of the region's wildflowers, trees, fishes, amphibians, reptiles, butterflies, mammals, and birds, including the elusive manatee, three species of dolphin, and the rare snail kite. An extensive sampling of the area's best parks, preserves, beaches, forests, islands, and wildlife sanctuaries, with thorough descriptions and visitor information on 50 destinations, is also included. For instance, the section on Everglades National Park includes information on wildlife viewing possibilities, driving directions, and popular touring attractions inside the park (such as Shark Valley, where a 15-mile loop via foot, rental bike, or tram affords close views of alligators, anhingas, and wading birds). Lesser-known areas such as Pelican Island National Wildlife Refuge and Withlacoochee State Forest are also featured. More than 1,300 color photographs heighten the quality of this handy compilation.

    Book summary:

    There are about 100,000 kinds of insects in North America, so obviously they can't have a field guide in the same way the 650 species of birds do: something both portable and complete. The National Audubon Society has produced a remarkably useful compromise. This guide has photographs and descriptions of 550 insect species and 60 kinds of spiders. Most of the families of arthropods on the continent are covered, as are all of the most common species. It's a very useful resource for any North American naturalist, and the best choice for an adult who is not an expert entomologist. --Mary Ellen Curtin

    Book summary:

    For the untrained observer, it can be quite a challenge to sort out the many trees that make up a stand of older forest in, say, New England or the Ozarks. This well-illustrated guidebook, covering 364 species, comes to the rescue with photographs organized in several ways: by, for example, the shape of the leaf or needle, by the fruit, by the flower or cone, and by autumn coloration. Following one visible characteristic or another, the reader can narrow the range of possibilities, then turn to an informative text that describes a tree's physical characteristics, habitat, and range. Many of the species covered are relatively rare, such as the "stinking cedar" of the Georgia-Florida border; others are locally abundant, such as the paper birch of the boreal forest, used to make ice-cream sticks; still others, such as the smooth sumac, are widespread. The guidebook also covers ornamentals introduced from other continents, such as the Chinese privet and Mahaleb cherry. --Gregory McNamee

    Book summary:

    This book is part of a series of guides designed for adolescents interested in natural history and nature. The books are an excellent introduction to the Rocks and Minerals, Birds, Wildflowers, and Insects for children aged 8-18. Each guide is appropriately sized to fit in a field vest pocket. Readers who remember previous versions of these field guides from the 1970s that were dull and overly detailed will be pleasantly surprised. These books are arguably the most beautifully photographed and laid out field guides yet published for young people. Each book has an introductory section filled with interesting facts, descriptions of early naturalists, definitions of many of the terms used in the book, and a guide to using the field guide portion of the book. Best of all, the books also come equipped with laminated field "cheat sheet" cards, for quick identification while on the go, in any kind of weather. Each field guide features 50 common specimens with photos and brief descriptions of many more regionally occurring rocks and minerals. Brief discussions of threatened and endangered species are particularly valuable. Great first guides for children and adults with limited natural history background.

    The Rocks and Minerals guide has excellent photographs and descriptions of many minerals and rock types. Most junior naturalists will never see mineral crystals in the field as shown in the photographs, but the guide gives a good understanding of where and how these minerals formed. --Merri Martz

    Book summary:

    Most of us take weather for granted--except when it gets extreme. But there are fascinating weather effects happening all the time, and a patient observer can see some very interesting things, like waterspouts, golfball-sized hail, and lenticular (saucer-shaped) clouds. This guide is your key to identifying and understanding weather phenomena. The first part of the book explains what weather is, how it is measured, and how you can build your own observation devices at home. The next section is a thorough guide to cloud types, storms, and precipitation that will have you thinking like a meteorologist in no time. Lastly, there's a well-organized reference section with a glossary and more weather resources. The book has a water-resistant binding and in the back you'll find a quick-reference spotting card that you can take out in the rain. Like all the guides in this series (Wildflowers, Insects, Birds, Rocks and Minerals, and Mammals), this First Field Guide to weather is a great family resource, perfect for kids and adults. (Ages 8 and up) --Therese Littleton
