  • Regreening the Built Environment: Nature, Green Space, and Sustainability

    by Michael A. Richards
    Regreening the Built Environment examines the relationship between the built environment and nature and demonstrates how rethinking the role and design of infrastructure can environmentally, economically, and socially sustain the earth. In the past, infrastructure and green or park spaces have been regarded as two opposing factors and placed in conflict with one another through irresponsible patterns of development.

  • Interpret: What do Plants tell us? RFS Book 4

    by Tina Bone
    Can you tell your Sagittaria sagittifolia from your Apium nodiflorum? Who knows or cares? Well, botanists have to care, but the rest of us rarely need to.

  • Drying Up: River Friend Series Book 1

    by Tina Bone
    What is the worst that can happen to a river? That it vanishes, and all its life vanishes with it: the people, the plants, the animals—not just the fish, but the crops, the cattle, the forests, the everything. All are made mostly of water. It is the natural fresh water in the land, derived from rain, which supports and sustains us. By over-abstracting, polluting, and damaging our wonderful, unique rivers and streams, they now support a fraction of the life that they should. This little book i... more
