Featured Reviews

"A good botanical glossary - and by good, I mean one that is both useful and used often - is a potent mix of art and science. In this case, the art is both literal, through Enid Mayfield's beautifully soft and precise watercolours, and in the exquisite way the definitions are crafted and presented. The science of course is in the detail, and this is exceptional. The result is more than a charming addition to my bookshelf. It will now unseat my previous glossary of choice (from Kew Gardens no less) and sit proudly beside Benjamin Daydon Jackson's Glossary of Botanical Terms, a masterwork of science but not of art."

Invasive Birds

Global Trends and Impacts

" Enhanced with a full listing of the contributors and their credentials, Invasive Birds: Global Trends and Impacts, collaboratively compiled and co-edited by Colleen T. Downs and Lorinda A. Hart, also features illustrations, an informative introduction, and a nine page index. An ideal and unreservedly recommended addition to professional, governmental, college, and university library Ecology and Zoology collections in general, and Ornithology supplemental curriculum studies lists in particular, it should be noted for the personal reading lists of students, ornithologists, and non-specialist general readers with an interest in the subject."

Library Bookwatch

"This is a well-organized and informative textbook that will provide readers with foundational-level knowledge of equine reproduction at an excellent price."


“Sweet Cherries” is written with practical details and underlying physiological concepts for use by beginning and established fruit growers, consultants, and advisors, with a primary focus on fresh market sweet cherries, in addition to students and professionals in horticulture."
