ECOLOGY FOR GARDENERS., Carroll, Steven B. & Salt, Steven D.
1 Carroll, Steven B. & Salt, Steven D. ECOLOGY FOR GARDENERS.
Portland Timber Press 2005 0881926116 / 9780881926118 Reprint Hard Cover Very Good+ Very Good Errol D. Hooper Jr. 
328 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H). Colour photographs, b&w drawings. "(T)he authors look at the structure, development, genetics, and reproduction of plants, the most prominent actors in garden ecosystems. They describe other garden organisms, focusing on those with the most influential roles - insects, nematodes, and microorganisms - as well as garden denizens ranging from microscopic prions to elephants. (They) explore nutrient cycles, sunlight, air, water, and the soil - the physical environment within which garden organisms live and function - and they consider the ways plants function in their environment and form communities. They then examine the intricate interactions among garden-dwelling organisms, ranging from the harmful to the beneficial. Once this groundwork is laid, they introduce humans into the garden ecosystem and consider how gardeners can use ecological principles to wisely manage their garden ecosystems. Throughout the book, the authors cite hundreds of examples drawn from personal experience and from the gardening and ecological literature. It becomes clear that gardens - whether a group of potted plants on a patio, a few beds carved out of a lawn, or extensive plantings over several acres - are indeed connected to the natural world in endless and important ways." Light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has light edge wear/wrinkling, a few tiny dents on spine and hinges.

LIFE BEYOND LIEBFRAUMILCH: UNDERSTANDING GERMAN FINE WINE., Pigott, Stuart.
3 Pigott, Stuart. LIFE BEYOND LIEBFRAUMILCH: UNDERSTANDING GERMAN FINE WINE.
London Sidgwick & Jackson 1988 0283995807 / 9780283995804 First Edition Soft Cover Near Fine Ian Ritchie, jacket Illustration. Maps by Katharina Kelly. 
262 pp, 8 1/2" H. B&w photographs, maps, reproductions of labels. "In recent years German wine has earned itself the reputation of being little more than cheap wine for quaffing. Yet the days of crude commercialization debasing a nation's wines may be over: for German wine producers, claims wine expert Stuart Pigott, are now showing renewed commitment to quality and classic wine styles. The leaders of this revival, and their wines, occupy centre stage in this highly informative book. Through well over 100 fascinating profiles, the author guides us through the regions and charts a clear path towards an easy understanding of Germany's diversity of counry and fine wines. (He) introduces many little-known producers of excellent wines that offer astonishing value for money, and points the finger firmly at those famous names which can no longer be relied upon. Some of his findings will surprise: he shows, for example, how red wines are emerging alongside the white wines for which Germany has long been renowned. (This book) is the product of years of meticulous research in Germany. It constitutes a refreshing reassessment of some of the world's least understood wines." Clean and tight.
