Using Science to Improve the BLM Wild Horse and Burro Program: A Way Forward reviews the science that underpins the Bureau of Land Management's oversight of free-ranging horses and burros on federal public lands in the western United States, concluding that constructive changes could be implemented. The Wild Horse and Burro Program has not used scientifically rigorous methods to estimate the population sizes of horses and burros, to model the effects of management actions on the animals, or to assess the availability and use of forage on rangelands. Evidence suggests that horse populations are growing by 15 to 20 percent each year, a level that is unsustainable for maintaining healthy horse populations as well as healthy ecosystems. Promising fertility-control methods are available to help limit this population growth, however. In addition, science-based methods exist for improving population estimates, predicting the effects of management practices in order to maintain genetically diverse, healthy populations, and estimating the productivity of rangelands. Greater transparency in how science-based methods are used to inform management decisions may help increase public confidence in the Wild Horse and Burro Program.
Birds are the most diverse group of land vertebrates and have evolved to exploit almost every terrestrial niche on earth. They also serve as a natural reservoir for an array of different pathogens that pose serious health risks to human and domestic animal populations, including West Nile virus, highly pathogenic avian influenza viruses, Newcastle Disease virus, and numerous enteric pathogens. Avian diseases are also critically important to the conservation of endemic bird species in many places around the world. This accessible textbook focuses on the dynamics of infectious diseases for wild avian hosts across every level of ecological hierarchy, from the way pathogens interact with the physiology and behavior of individual hosts, the evolutionary and ecological dynamics of the host-parasite interactions occurring within populations, up to the complex biotic and abiotic interactions occurring within biological communities and ecosystems. Parasite-bird interactions are also increasingly occurring in rapidly changing global environments - thus, their ecology is also changing - and this shapes the complex ways by which parasites influence the inter-connected health of birds, humans, and shared ecosystems. Given the key role of birds in ecological communities more broadly, and as the primary host to so many zoonotic pathogens, an understanding of the ecological and evolutionary principles underlying the maintenance, amplification, transmission, and dispersal of these infectious agents is crucial to understanding how to mitigate the negative global impacts of the ever-increasing number of emerging infectious diseases. Although the topics and principles discussed in this book relate to birds, they have a far wider relevance and can also be applied to non-avian, wildlife host-pathogen systems. The COVID-19 pandemic has shown that understanding of disease ecology in wild animal populations is paramount to global health. Infectious Disease Ecology of Wild Birds is suitable
Wild Law - In Practice aims to facilitate the transition of Earth Jurisprudence from theory into practice. Earth Jurisprudence is an emerging philosophy of law, coined by cultural historian and geologian Thomas Berry. It seeks to analyse the contribution of law in constructing, maintaining and perpetuating anthropocentrism and addresses the ways in which this orientation can be undermined and ultimately eliminated. In place of anthropocentrism, Earth Jurisprudence advocates an interpretation of law based on the ecocentric concept of an Earth community that includes both human and nonhuman entities. Addressing topics that include a critique of the effectiveness of environmental law in protecting the environment, developments in domestic/constitutional law recognising the rights of nature, and the regulation of sustainability, Wild Law - In Practice is the first book to focus specifically on the practical legal implications of Earth Jurisprudence.

Data, facts, background and hypotheses with participatory actions about the of wild bee dying, flying insect dying and honey bee dying – and becoming extinct - the book to my website www.bee-leaks.com - thoroughly researched from the media, put together from many international email contacts with scientists and prepared with their own resulting considerations. Short, brief, understandable, clear. Chapter overview: 1. Facts on the death of the wild bees 2. Facts, contradictory opinions and hypotheses about the causes 3. About the bumblebee 4. Differences of honey bee - wild bee dying 5. Bees and politics 6. Alternative to pesticides 7. And do you miss the wasps? 8. Do not you experience a certain melancholy in good old times, when it was still buzzing and buzzing outside?
Following on from Wild Medicine: Summer, herbalist Ali English's seasonal exploration of the wonders of hedgerow medicine continues with Autumn/Winter (2019) and Spring (2020). Gloriously illustrated with her own photographs, this series is a beautiful introduction to wild foraging - packed with recipes, remedies, and ideas for making the most of nature's abundant bounty. The books encourage a love of our native plants and their many uses and provide inspiration to gather and make your own medicine. Ali persuades us to turn over a small part of our own gardens to growing wild plants at a time when the natural places of the world are under threat.
Wild cats are large, powerful hunters found across most of the world and in 36 different species. While their anatomy and social behavior have strong similarities, they also exhibit many unique traits. The similarities and differences of well-known cats such as lions, tigers, leopards, and others are explored in arresting detail, charts, maps, and illustrations.

Delphi Gifford has nearly given up on finding someone she could love as much as her dead husband, Fallon, who had died while they were still in college. Certainly local photographer Jeremy Litster wasn't at the top of her list, egomaniac that he is--even if he did drive the hottest racing motorbike she'd ever touched. Jeremy knew George DiCarlo had hand-picked him to marry Delphi, but hadn't counted on her not being in the loop. After working together for six months, though, he seriously regrets his misstep and begins a careful campaign to win her over. When someone tries to take the two of them out, he has to figure out what they did or saw that put them both in danger.
Upon moving to the city, from a log cabin in the north woods of Vermont the author thought: “Oh, no, my haiku will suffer!” She then took this statement as a challenge.
