Charles "Chuck" Ray moved to Naples, FL in 1979. Chuck grew up in South Dakota and joined the U.S. Air Force shortly after high school. He served in the Air Force as a Flight Engineer for 20 years. During that career he earned most of the credits toward a Bachelor's Degree. After leaving the Air Force he returned to the University of Nebraska where he completed a B.S. in Biology, and a M.S. in Limnology (Freshwater Biology).Following graduation he joined an engineering-Planning firm in Orange County, California. Chuck worked from his California office, participating in and managing environmental projects in California, Arizona, Utah, Alaska and other western states. His studies concentrated on lakes and streams that might be affected by projects that included dams, mines, power lines, transportation corridors and others. Besides aquatic studies, he often participated in other fields including Hydrology, Botany and Ornithology. Chuck came to Florida in 1979 to assume partnership in a 600 acre resort and real estate project known as Port of the Islands. The resort is situated on a canal that is surrounded by mangrove forest, hardwood hammocks, and pine flatwoods. It includes habitat for manatees and other threatened or endangered species. The canal leads out to the Ten Thousand Islands. Chuck's work there included operation of the marina and the planning and development of the resort's real estate. After retirement from the resort, Chuck continued his lifetime hobbies of gardening and fishing. Soon after, he became a Florida Master Gardener and later a Certified Horticulturist. His work at home, in the local woods and waters, and in the gardens and Plant Clinic of the Collier County Extension, gave him a broad knowledge of the plants of Florida, and a special interest in trees. Cathleen Feser is editor of this book, and a partner in its preparation. Cathy is Urban Horticulturist for Collier County Extension. She is a distinguished graduate of New Mexico State University with Masters Degrees in Horticultural Sciences and English.

"This book explores the complex processes and features of mountain environments: glaciers, snow and avalanches, landforms, weather and climate, vegetation, soils, and wildlife. A major section analyzes the effects of latitudinal position on these processes and features. There is also an investigation of the origin of mountains, our attitudes towards them, and their manifold implications for us."--Inside front jacket.

PHYSICAL GEOGRAPHY, Eleventh Edition, uses the combined expertise of three accomplished and respected geographers to show not only what constitutes physical geography but also the interrelationships between people and Earth’s natural environment. The well-written text and excellent illustrations emphasize three essential themes to demonstrate the major roles of the discipline -- Geography as Physical Science, Geography as Spatial Science, and Geography as Environmental Science. With a strong focus on processes and the interrelationships among Earth’s systems, this text guides students to an understanding and appreciation of how the various natural systems function and of how humans are an integral component of physical geography. Historically, this was the first Physical Geography textbook to take an environmental sustainability approach, and the authors continue to address the theme of human interactions with the environment.

Insects are the most abundant and diverse organisms that inhabit our planet and are found in all the world’s forest ecosystems. Many feed and/or breed on parts of trees. Some perform important functions, such as pollination or break-down of dead vegetation. Others weaken, deform or kill trees, and compete with humans for the many goods and services that trees and forests provide. Forest Entomology: A Global Perspective examines forest insects in a global context and reviews their dynamics, interactions with humans and methods for monitoring and management of species that damage forests. Also provided are 235 profiles of forest insects, worldwide. A series of tables provides summaries of the distribution and hosts of many more species. Included are those that damage forests, others that are simply curiosities and some that are beneficial. This book is designed as a reference for students, practicing foresters and forest health specialists, especially for those who work internationally or are concerned with species that have the potential to expand their ranges via international trade, travel or environmental changes.

America's most populous region is also home to some of the nation's most serenely beautiful country. Tracing a gentle, thousand-mile curve from New York City southwestward to Montgomery, Alabama, the Piedmont connects an arc of urban centers which includes five state capitals, America's largest city, and the national capital. Between the Atlantic coastal plain and the Blue Ridge Mountains, the Piedmont's rolling hills span miles of farmland and forest. Michael Godfrey's Field Guide to the Piedmont--originally published by Sierra Club Books and here newly revised and updated--is an informative and entertaining guide to the entire region's habitats, ecosystems, and rich botanical communities. Focusing on plant succession, geology, soils, climate, and the plants and animals with which we share the land, Field Guide to the Piedmont also features 180 illustrations for easy identification of the Piedmont's principal flora and fauna. A chapter describing and providing directions to over fifty sites of special interest will inspire Piedmont residents to take this field guide in hand and explore their natural surroundings.

Temperate broadleaved trees grow in very different ecosystems in the northern and southern hemispheres, but are also found extensively in many tropical and subtropical mountain areas. A wide range of non-wood products are derived from temperate broadleaved trees, and their description is organized in this volume according to the part of the tree from which they are obtained (whole tree, foliage, flowers, etc.). This information is presented in order to raise awareness on, and assist in identifying, opportunities for the management and production of non-wood products from temperate broadleaved trees. The intended audience of this publication ranges from interest groups in the forest, agriculture and rural development sectors to conservation agencies in developed and developing countries.
