Item Description: Allen & Unwin, Australia, 2005. Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover. Book Condition: Good. Robert Bateman (illustrator). 1st Edition. 12mo. 190 indexed pages. Tells the life story of a single tree a majestic Douglas-fir on the Pacific coast of North America. The story begins with the release of a cloud of millions of microscopic grains of pollen that coat thousands of pine cones on neighbouring trees. One pollen grain fertilizes an egg cell to create a seed and that seed develops into the tree. We follow the tree's progress as it grows and discover what role the tree plays in the forest throughout its life - from its use a home to a succession of creatures to the crucial role it plays in the water cycle, from breaking rock down into soil to removing carbon dioxide from the air and producing oxygen. Even after it dies, the tree plays a crucial role in the forest with moss, ferns, and other plants using the tree as a nurse log, and its decaying wood providing nutrients for insects and fungi. This book looks at the community of organisms that share the tree's ecosystem and at the events going on in the larger world during the tree's lifetime. This book also pays tribute to a ubiquitous organism that is too often taken for granted but without which life would be impossible. Inscription in the inside front cover. 12mo.

Item Description: Univ of New South Wales, Australia, 2001. Pictorial Soft Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. 12mo. 178 indexed pages. Climate change on a global scale has been described as 'the mother of all environmental issues', with many scientists warning of the dire consequences already facing us, even if remedial action is undertaken immediately. It is almost certainly the largest, most difficult environmental challenge the world now faces. And it has also provided the Australian federal government with one of its most awkward political issues - with the nation being transformed in the eyes of many from a world environmental leader into an international pariah. Running from the Storm is a timely book from one of Australia's most prominent commentator on the issue. It provides a lively, comprehensive and provocative account of the key issues that affect climate change policy in Australia. It details the many policy failures, the murky politics of climate change, the corruption of the policy process, the influence of the fossil-fuel industries on our politicians and policy makers, and the ethical issues that underpin the public debate. All of these are discussed in the context of the momentous international developments before and after the landmark Kyoto Protocol in December 1997. 12mo. Bookseller Inventory # 052762

Item Description: Nelson Education, Australia, 1997. Stapled Pictorial Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. 8vo. 33 indexed pages including colour illustrations and bibliography. Eventually everything changes. The stars finally burn themselves out and planets are scarred by meteorites. These things take more than a lifetime to happen. Even on our own planet some things are happening very slowly. We only know they are changing because we can record changes. Creeks make gullies down mountain ranges, and the sea turns rocky shores into sand. Some natural events can happen much faster. Volcanoes build new islands in the ocean, and fires destroy forests. There is change in things manufactured, in living things, and in our natural physical world. Tall trees fall to the forest floor and may take years to rot away. Rainwater turns into snow on high mountains. Things change at different rates. Often people control change on purpose to improve their lives. We also try to stop things from changing - or, at least, slow down change. For example, a wooden wharf would rot quickly and its metal bolts would rust if it was not painted. This book looks at changes that occur naturally, as well as changes that people produce. Upper primary school children. 8vo. Bookseller Inventory # 053977

Item Description: Envirobook, Australia, 1996. Glossy Soft Cover. Book Condition: Good. 1st Edition. 12mo. 179 pages about our economic system that explains precisely why a few people are getting richer, most people are getting poorer, and why - if we don’t change our ways - we’re all heading for catastrophe. Mass poverty and hunger, unemployment, underdevelopment, waste, armed conflict, resource scarcity and environmental destruction - all are caused by the disastrous flaws in our economy. Ted Trainer shows how economic growth is leading to disaster because it ignores finite resources and ecological limits, thereby directly promoting violence and injustice as well as ecological calamity. Having invalidated both ‘free enterprise capitalism’ and ‘big state socialism’ as viable long-term economic systems, Dr Trainer puts forward an alternative, a Third Way ‘conserver society’ that constitutes some of the best elements of the other two. It would be more simply structured, highly localised, less cash-reliant, with less transport of goods, more local production for local need, and a role for barter and free exchange. It is an alternative model of society with far-reaching consequences in many disciplines, and it demands a radical re-think of conventional economics, of what we mean by ‘standard of living’, and of the ways we relate to one another in society. 12mo.

Item Description: Abacus, U. K., 1978. Glossy Soft Cover. Book Condition: Good. 1st Edition. 16mo. 241 indexed pages. 200 years ago almost everywhere human beings were comparatively few, poor and at the mercy of the forces of nature, and 200 years from now, we expect, almost everywhere they will be numerous rich, and in control of the forces of nature. Eminent strategist and futurologist Herman Kahn dismisses the dire warnings of the doom-watchers and comes up with this optimistic scenario. From studies undertaken at the Hudson Institute (whose famous Hudson Report became an international bestseller), he and his colleagues present important facts, assumptions, analyses and conclusions in each of the major current problem areas: population - energy - mineral resources - food - environment In so doing, they evolve an affirmative strategy for both the near and long- term future. 16mo.

Item Description: Oxford Univ Pr, U. K., 1997. Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. 12mo. 260 indexed pages. An excellent sampling of a literature which has always had a wide appeal. Starting with Aesop and Aristotle and ending with a piece written just a decade ago by Primo Levi, there is something here for everyone.In this superb anthology, with its rich variety of sources from Europe and America, Richard Mabey charts the development of nature writing from the fabulous imaginings of the medieval bestiaries to the scientific accuracy and philosophical concerns of present day naturalists. It is both an inspirational and essential read, illustrating the diversity and beauty that has existed around us since ancient times. This book is intended for anyone interested in natural history, in nature writing, animals and plants, ecologists, conservationists and present-day naturalists. Extracts by writers as varied as the naturalist Gilbert White, poets and novelists such as Coleridge and Orwell, and scientists from Linnaeus to Lewis Thomas, illustrate the diversity and beauty which exists, and which must he encouraged to thrive, in the natural world. 12mo.

Item Description: State Univ of New York Pr, U.S.A., 1998. Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. 12mo. 151 indexed pages. Complementary studies by two major social ethicists on these issues. Daniel C. Maguire indicts our male-dominated religions for the problems they have caused for our ecology and reproductive ethics. He raises the controversial questions of whether the very concept of God is a problem and whether Christianity's notions of afterlife and a divinized male have done more harm than good. Larry L. Rasmussen also recognizes that the problems of our planet are largely male-made and rich-dominated. He writes that Europeans packaged a form of earth-unfriendly capitalism and shipped it all over the world with missionary zeal. He ably scans the long history that led to the current manic rush to push the earth beyond its limits, and goes on to suggest moral norms and policy guidelines for sustainable communities and genuinely shared power. Both authors argue that there are positive and renewable moral energies in the world's religions and that unless religion, understood as a response to the sanctity of life, animates our ethical debates, the prospects for the world are grim. The sense of the sacred is presented here as the nucleus of the good and the only force that can bring about the lifestyle changes and power reallocations that are necessary to prevent terracide. 12mo.

Item Description: Australian Academy of Science, Australia, 1981. Soft Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. xvi + 143 pages. Research into lead and the Australian health environment brought some unexpected answers: Some evidence suggested lead is added in some way to food and beverages during processing, some children ingest lead from dust or dirt, from lead paint on old houses, lead toys or dust on clothes of family members who work in the lead industry - Australia IS one ‘of the world's largest producers of lead. There is, however, no clear-cut level of lead concentration in blood above which adverse effects are observed. While the researchers said their findings on humans did not give rise to grave concern, their conclusion was that certain limited populations are at risk and require identification. Lead from motor exhausts does not produce signs and symptoms of clinical lead poisoning.

Item Description: Zed Books, United Kingdom, 1996. Glossy Soft Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. 12mo. 220 indexed pages. By the year 2005 half the world's population will be living in cities. Already, half the poor are urban dwellers. Confronted with the sheer scale of the problem, urban policy in the South has undergone a succession of sharp changes of approach over the years. More recently, as the exciting examples in this book vividly show, there are renewed grounds for optimism that a new approach, with an emphasis on a partnership between the people, NGOs, private investors and local authorities, can have a more effective impact in tackling the multiple dimensions of the urban crisis facing the poor. The purpose of this book is to seek out innovative, but not necessarily well-known, approaches that have actually worked on a rather large scale in a variety of big city contexts in India, Pakistan, Egypt, Indonesia and elsewhere. Dr Badshah's aim is to identify effective urban practices that are socially equitable, ecologically sustainable, economically viable and - equally important - culturally transferrable into other contexts. This up-to-date presentation of some of the most fruitful current approaches to tackling urban problems, with its wealth of original case study detail collected in situ, makes it a book of considerable value to all those - planners, researchers, teachers, policy makers - involved in seeking to create a better urban future.

Item Description: Dorr-McLeod Pub, Australia, 1983. Stapled Pictorial Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. 34 pages including large colour illustrations. Wilderness is not a new word. It has long- standing historical Wand spiritual connotations and has meant various things to us at different times. The histories of modern societies echo one another with accounts of adventurers and explorers who went beyond the bounds of world as it was then known. Then, to many societies, Wilderness was those parts of the world they had not yet settled or made safe. It was something to be crossed at peril, a barrier to knowledge and security. As civilisation expanded, the natural world began to shrink. With industrial and technological growth, people discovered an increasing potential for moulding the natural environment. Given more power. and perhaps sensing some kind of victory, civilisation took on the blank, unchartered corners of the planet. The feelings towards wilderness was changing. More and more it was becoming something to be pushed back, an obstacle to progress and a modern world. Yet, throughout all this time, there have been people - either societies or individuals - whose awareness of ‘wilderness has not been this unhappy mix of fear and conquest. For such people, whether archaic or modern, wilderness was not a place to grasp and surround, not to penetrate and harness but a place simply and profoundly to be. It was and is a source of knowledge, harmony and well-being - a place to ask questions and await answers. Few places remain today where such wilderness can be experienced. where the world exists free from our meddling. South-West Tasmania is one of these few. With its extremely wet and severe climate, rugged folds of mountains and dense vegetation, it has generally been regarded as a place too difficult to develop . until recently. Some in-roads have already been made into the area on several sides, but, essentially untouched remnants still survive. With our demands slowly drawing the reins more tightly around the world’s remaining wilderness areas, this book sets out to portray what we still can act to save. This book reflects some of the special features of the South-West wilderness area. It hints at secrets which can only be discovered through the experience of wilderness. Size: Folio.

Item Description: Island Pr, U.S.A., 2004. Glossy Soft Cover. Book Condition: Good. 1st Edition. 12mo. 215 indexed pages. "In a clear, engaging style, Dr. Walters tells the tale of each disease like a detective story. He allows each mystery to unfold as it did in reality, often slowly, through the lives of the plants and animals involved, the first human victims, the government officials who tried to respond, and the scientists who ultimately explained what was happening." - NEW YORK TIMES ".a fascinating work of ecological journalism, utterly convincing in its argument: that our health and the health of the environment are intimately linked, and we overlook that link at our peril." - MICHAEL POLLAN, AUTHOR OF SECOND NATURE AND THE BOTANY OF DESIRE. "Mark Jerome Walters weaves a fine thread of human disturbances through the quilt work of modern pandemics. After being drawn engagingly into the explosive symptoms of global environmental change, readers will come to understand that we have no choice but to make peace with nature." - PAUL R. EPSTEIN, M.D., M.P.H., CENTER FOR HEALTH AND THE GLOBAL ENVIRONMENT, HARVARD MEDICAL SCHOOL. West Nile Virus -- Mad Cow Disease -- HIV/AIDS -- Hantavirus -- Lyme Disease . and a new strain of Salmonella. Such modern epidemics have emerged over the past few decades as mysterious, yet significant risks to human health. These "plagues" are forcing us to modify our lifestyles in ways that minimize our chances of becoming a statistic in the latest tally of the afflicted. In Six Modern Plagues, Mark Jerome Walters offers us the first book for the general reader that connects these emerging health risks and their ecological origins. Drawing on new research, interviews, and his own investigations, Mark Jerome Walters weaves together a compelling argument: that changes humans have made to the environment, from warming the climate to clearing the forests, have contributed to, if not caused a rising tide of diseases that are afflicting humans and many other species. According to Mark Jerome Walters, humans are not always innocent bystanders to infectious disease. To the contrary, in the case of many modern epidemics, we are the instigators. Six Modern Plagues, a ground-breaking introduction to the connection between disease and environmental degradation should be read by all those interested in their health and the health of others. 12mo.
