Vanilla Beans and Brodo Excerpt :

Isabella Dusi, a native Australian, settled in Montalcino, a beautiful mountain eyrie famous for its wine and the proud nature of its inhabitants. Her acceptance into this close-knit community was a hard-won thing and has inspired Isabella to capture the true spirit of Montalcino. Vanilla Beans & Brodo tells of the violent history of this medieval village, which has lefts its mark on the character traits of the Montalcinese, and also offers a rare insight into the anxiety, joy, fun, and pressure of daily life as it unfolds with the seasons. An evocative story of the rivalry between village neighborhoods, of football fever and festival pageantry, Isabella Dusi destroys the myth that Tuscan villages are tranquil places, and instead reveals a life infinitely rich and full of dramas.

Brodo Excerpt :

No one has been more responsible for the recent explosion of interest in bone than New York City chef Marco Canora. After completely revitalizing his health by integrating bone broth into his diet, Marco began to make his nourishing broths available by the cupful to New Yorkers from a small window in his East Village restaurant, drawing sell-out crowds virtually from the beginning. No longer just a building block for soups and sauces, bone broths are now being embraced for their innumerable health benefits, from cultivating a healthier gut to greater resistance to colds and other illnesses. In Brodo, Marco shares the recipes for his flavorful, nutritious broths and shows how to serve them year round as well as incorporate them into recipes and as a daily health practice. Perfect for stirring into a broth bowl or a pot of risotto, as a more gentle, supportive alternative to the afternoon caffeine fix, and an immunity and health booster any time, the homey bone broths in Brodo should be a part of every well-stocked pantry.

Plants of British Columbia Excerpt :

This book is an up-to-date checklist of the current valid taxonomy for all vascular plants, bryophytes, and lichens in British Columbia, including synonyms, species codes, and other information. A convenient, geographically restricted, comprehensive checklist like this one will aid greatly in avoiding the present confusion concerning the names of many species in the ecological and systematic literature, as well as in applied fields. The book is organized into three sections. Part 1 organizes species alphabetically according to taxonomic order by families of vascular plants, bryophytes, and lichens. Within each family, the genera are listed alphabetically, along with any synonomies (former names) and common names. In Part 2 species are organized alphabetically according to their scientific names. Part 3 lists common names followed by their scientific names. Excluded names (names inappropriately applied to plants in B.C.) are given in an appendix. Those familiar with plant taxonomy will find Part 1 particularly helpful when checking nomenclature; semi-professionals familiar with scientific names will use Part 2 and then Part 1; those who know only common names will check Part 3 and then Part 2 and Part 1 to determine families. There is presently considerable confusion about many species names in B.C. Plant names change for many reasons and new plants invade. Information about plants in B.C. is scattered in several checklists, most of them incomplete or out of date; for some species, such as liverworts, no provincial checklist even exists. This checklist therefore will be useful to all professionals working with vegetation and for students in agriculture, botany, ecology, forestry and other sciences. Although the focus is on B.C., the book will also be useful outside the province, particularly in the northwest American states and in Alberta and the Yukon.

Lichens of North America Excerpt :

Lichens are a unique form of plant life, the product of a symbiotic association between an alga and a fungus. The beauty and importance of lichens have long been overlooked, despite their abundance and diversity in most parts of North America and elsewhere in the world. This stunning book--the first accessible and authoritative guidebook to lichens of the North American continent--fills the gap, presenting superb color photographs, descriptions, distribution maps, and keys for identifying the most common, conspicuous, or ecologically significant species. The book focuses on 805 foliose, fruticose, and crustose lichens (the latter rarely included in popular guidebooks) and presents information on another 700 species in the keys or notes; special attention is given to species endemic to North America. A comprehensive introduction discusses the biology, structure, uses, and ecological significance of lichens and is illustrated with 90 additional color photos and many line drawings. English names are provided for most species, and the book also includes a glossary that explains technical terms. This visually rich and informative book will open the eyes of nature lovers everywhere to the fascinating world of lichens.
