Animals in Translation by Temple Grandin
"I don't know if people will ever be able to talk to animals the way Doctor Doolittle could, or whether animals will be able to talk back. Maybe science will have something to say about that. But I do know people can learn to "talk" to animals, and to hear what animals have to say, better than they do now. "--From "Animals in Translation" Why would a cow lick a tractor? Why are collies getting dumber? Why do dolphins sometimes kill for fun? How can a parrot learn to spell? How did wolves teach man to evolve? Temple Grandin draws upon a long, distinguished career as an animal scientist and her own experiences with autism to deliver an extraordinary message about how animals act, think, and feel. She has a perspective like that of no other expert in the field, which allows her to offer unparalleled observations and groundbreaking ideas. People with autism can often think the way animals think, putting them in the perfect position to translate "animal talk." Grandin is a faithful guide into their world, exploring animal pain, fear, aggression, love, friendship, communication, learning, and, yes, even animal genius. The sweep of Animals in Translation is immense and will forever change the way we think about animals. *includes a Behavior and Training Troubleshooting Guide Among its provocative ideas, the book: argues that language is not a requirement for consciousness--and that animals do have consciousness applies the autism theory of "hyper-specificity" to animals, showing that animals and autistic people are so sensitive to detail that they "can't see the forest for the trees"--a talent as well as a "deficit" explores the "interpreter" in the normal human brain that filters out detail, leaving people blind to much of the reality that surrounds them--a reality animals and autistic people see, sometimes all too clearly explains how animals have "superhuman" skills: animals have animal genius compares animals to autistic savants, declaring that animals may in fact be autistic savants, with special forms of genius that normal people do not possess and sometimes cannot even see examines how humans and animals use their emotions to think, to decide, and even to predict the future reveals the remarkable abilities of handicapped people and animals maintains that the single worst thing you can do to an animal is to make it feel afraid --Books in Print

Animals Make Us Human by Temple Grandin
The best-selling animal advocate Temple Grandin offers the most exciting exploration of how animals feel since The Hidden Life of Dogs. In her groundbreaking and best-selling book Animals in Translation, Temple Grandin drew on her own experience with autism as well as her distinguished career as an animal scientist to deliver extraordinary insights into how animals think, act, and feel. Now she builds on those insights to show us how to give our animals the best and happiest life--on their terms, not ours. It's usually easy to pinpoint the cause of physical pain in animals, but to know what is causing them emotional distress is much harder. rawing on the latest research and her own work,Grandin identifies the core emotional needs of animals. Then she explains how to fulfill them for dogs and cats, horses, farm animals, and zoo animals.Whether it's how to make the healthiest environment for the dog you must leave alone most of the day, how to keep pigs from being bored, or how to know if the lion pacing in the zoo is miserable or just exercising, Grandin teaches us to challenge our assumptions about animal contentment and honor our bond with our fellow creatures. Animals Make Us Human is the culmination of almost thirty years of research, experimentation, and experience. This is essential reading for anyone who's ever owned, cared for, or simply cared about an animal. --Books in Print

Battle for Yellowstone by Justin Farrell
Coming in February 2017 -- Yellowstone holds a special place in America's heart. As the world's first national park, it is globally recognized as the crown jewel of modern environmental preservation. But the park and its surrounding regions have recently become a lightning rod for environmental conflict, plagued by intense and intractable political struggles among the federal government, National Park Service, environmentalists, industry, local residents, and elected officials. The Battle for Yellowstone asks why it is that, with the flood of expert scientific, economic, and legal efforts to resolve disagreements over Yellowstone, there is no improvement? Why do even seemingly minor issues erupt into impassioned disputes? What can Yellowstone teach us about the worsening environmental conflicts worldwide? Justin Farrell argues that the battle for Yellowstone has deep moral, cultural, and spiritual roots that until now have been obscured by the supposedly rational and technical nature of the conflict. Tracing in unprecedented detail the moral causes and consequences of large-scale social change in the American West, he describes how a "new-west" social order has emerged that has devalued traditional American beliefs about manifest destiny and rugged individualism, and how morality and spirituality have influenced the most polarizing and techno-centric conflicts in Yellowstone's history. This groundbreaking book shows how the unprecedented conflict over Yellowstone is not all about science, law, or economic interests, but more surprisingly, is about cultural upheaval and the construction of new moral and spiritual boundaries in the American West. --Books in Print

Caesar's Last Breath by Sam Kean
***Available on July 18, 2017***The fascinating science and history of the air we breathe It's invisible. It's ever-present. Without it, you would die in minutes. And it has an epic story to tell. In Caesar's Last Breath, New York Times bestselling author Sam Kean takes us on a journey through the periodic table, around the globe, and across time to tell the story of the air we breathe, which, it turns out, is also the story of earth and our existence on it. With every breath, you literally inhale the history of the world. On the ides of March, 44 BC, Julius Caesar died of stab wounds on the Senate floor, but the story of his last breath is still unfolding; in fact, you're probably inhaling some of it now. Of the sextillions of molecules entering or leaving your lungs at this moment, some might well bear traces of Cleopatra's perfumes, German mustard gas, particles exhaled by dinosaurs or emitted by atomic bombs, even remnants of stardust from the universe's creation. Tracing the origins and ingredients of our atmosphere, Kean reveals how the alchemy of air reshaped our continents, steered human progress, powered revolutions, and continues to influence everything we do. Along the way, we'll swim with radioactive pigs, witness the most important chemical reactions humans have discovered, and join the crowd at the Moulin Rouge for some of the crudest performance art of all time. Lively, witty, and filled with the astounding science of ordinary life, Caesar's Last Breath illuminates the science stories swirling around us every second. --Publisher's Website

Environmental Protection by Pamela Hill
Although climate change and pollution make near-daily appearances in the news, humans have not always recognized that the environment needs to be protected. Only after the publication of Rachel Carson's Silent Spring in 1962 did environmental protection became a political and social priority. In Environmental Protection: What Everyone Needs to Know#65533;, environmental lawyer Pamela Hill offers clear, engaging answers to some of the most pressing questions facing us today. She discusses the science behind current environmental issues, defining key terms such as ecosystems, pollutants, and endocrine disruptors. Hill explains why our environment needs protection, using examples from history and current events, from the Irish potato famine to the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico and the drinking water crisis in Flint, Michigan. She also assesses the effectiveness of landmark laws and treaties, including the Clean Air Act, the Endangered Species Act, and the Kyoto Protocol. To what extent is it acceptable to rank human interests over ecological interests? And is it fair to ask developing countries to reduce emissions, even though they bear little responsibility for our current environmental problems? Hill identifies the greatest environmental threats we are facing today and suggests what we need to do as citizens, businesspeople, and lawmakers to protect the environment for each other and for future generations. --Books in Print

Firestorm by Edward Struzik
For two months in the spring of 2016, the world watched as wildfire ravaged the town of Fort McMurray. Firefighters named the fire the Beast. It seemed to be alive with destructive energy, and they hoped never to see anything like it again. Yet its not a stretch to imagine we will all soon live in a world in which fires like the Beast are commonplace. In Firestorm, Edward Struzik confronts this new reality, offering a deftly woven tale of science, economics, politics, and human determination. Its possible for us to flourish in the coming age of megafires but it will take a radical new approach that requires acknowledging that fires are no longer avoidable. Living with fire also means, Struzik reveals, that we must better understand how the surprising, far-reaching impacts of these massive fires will linger long after the smoke eventually clears. --Books in Print

For the Love of Rivers by Kurt Fausch
Rivers and streams supply our water and capture our imaginations. We seek the more pristine ones to fish or paddle, to hike along or simply sit and watch. But what is it we are seeing? What is essential about streams and rivers for us as humans? In "For the Love of Rivers, " stream ecologist Kurt Fausch draws readers across the reflective surface of streams to view and ponder what is beneath, and how they work. While celebrating their beauty and mystery, he uses his many years of experience as a field biologist to explain the underlying science connecting these aquatic ecosystems to their streamside forests and the organisms found there--including humans. "For the Love of Rivers" introduces readers to the life and work of Shigeru Nakano, a pioneering river ecologist who inspired other scientists around the world with his innovative research on stream-forest connections. Fausch takes readers along as he journeys to Japan, where he awakens to an unfamiliar culture, to Nakano, and his research. Nakano's life was abruptly ended in a tragic field accident, and his death was deeply mourned. Fausch joins Japanese and American colleagues to continue Nakano's research legacy, learn everything they can about the effects that humans have on rivers, fish, and their intricate links with riparian zones, and share this knowledge with others. More than a book about stream ecology, "For the Love of Rivers" is a celebration of the interconnectedness of life. It is an authoritative and accessible look at the science of rivers and streams, but it also ponders the larger questions of why rivers are important to humans, why it is in our nature to want to be near them, and what we can do now to ensure the future of these essential ecosystems. KURT D. FAUSCH is a professor in the Department of Fish, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology at Colorado State University, where he has taught for 33 years. His collaborative research has taken him throughout Colorado, the West, and worldwide, including to Hokkaido in northern Japan. His experiences in Japan were chronicled in the PBS documentary film "RiverWebs." He has received numerous awards from the American Fisheries Society and the World Council of Fisheries Societies, and served as the acting Director of the Graduate Degree Program in Ecology at CSU. --Books in Print

Grasses of Colorado by Robert Shaw
This systematic treatment of Colorado grasses will help students, naturalists, botanists, ecologists, agronomists, range scientists, and other interested readers identify and learn about this unique and economically important plant family. Grasses of Colorado describes all grasses known to occur in the state outside of cultivation: more than 300 native, introduced, naturalized, and adventive species. Colorado's elevation range of more than 11,000 feet creates a wide variety of habitats that supports a spectacular diversity of grasses. With 335 known species, Colorado has one of the most diverse and extensive grass floras in the United States. Comprehensive coverage, useful keys, and detailed species descriptions in Grasses of Colorado will make this volume the standard reference for years to come. Robert B. Shaw provides overviews of Colorado's physiography and ecoregions and introduces the grass plant in plain, enjoyable text. He includes a checklist of Colorado grasses, a bibliography, and a glossary of terms that may be unfamiliar to nonspecialists. Line drawings, state distribution maps, and habitat notes for each species enable accurate plant identification, familiarity with regional ecogeography, and increased understanding of plant ecology of the Rocky Mountains. A monumental accomplishment certain to become the standard work on the subject, Grasses of Colorado synthesizes existing literature and incorporates recent scientific findings to offer a complete, current reference. --Books in Print

In a Sunburned Country by Bill Bryson
A CLASSIC FROM THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF ONE SUMMER Every time Bill Bryson walks out the door, memorable travel literature threatens to break out. His previous excursion along the Appalachian Trail resulted in the sublime national bestseller A Walk in the Woods. In A Sunburned Country is his report on what he found in an entirely different place: Australia, the country that doubles as a continent, and a place with the friendliest inhabitants, the hottest, driest weather, and the most peculiar and lethal wildlife to be found on the planet. The result is a deliciously funny, fact-filled, and adventurous performance by a writer who combines humor, wonder, and unflagging curiosity. Despite the fact that Australia harbors more things that can kill you in extremely nasty ways than anywhere else, including sharks, crocodiles, snakes, even riptides and deserts, Bill Bryson adores the place, and he takes his readers on a rollicking ride far beyond that beaten tourist path. Wherever he goes he finds Australians who are cheerful, extroverted, and unfailingly obliging, and these beaming products of land with clean, safe cities, cold beer, and constant sunshine fill the pages of this wonderful book. Australia is an immense and fortunate land, and it has found in Bill Bryson its perfect guide. --Books in Print

New Basis for Animal Ethics by Bernard Rollin
"Bernie Rollin is a philosopher whose head is most definitely not in the clouds. Instead, it's on our farms and slaughter plants, in our testing laboratories, in our rodeo arenas, and on our hunting grounds--in short, all the places where humans use animals as they see fit. He's given us a lucid, compelling blueprint for how to reimagine our relationship with animals, driven by a social ethic that is common to us all and filled with common sense. This is yet another important book from one of the pre-eminent impact players in the contemporary animal protection movement."--Wayne Pacelle, president & CEO, The Humane Society of the United States "Possibly the most important book on animal welfare written to date. In exquisite chapter after chapter Rollin presents the philosophical background of what telos is, why it matters and demonstrates with stories, anecdotes, and data, why common sense is an important basis for understanding animals, their needs and their wants. Rollin has the ability to speak to each reader as if s/he is the only person he is talking to. He is a remarkable talent and brilliant teacher. A great read, a must read."--Alan Goldberg, Johns Hopkins School of Public Health Founding Director Emeritus of the Center for Alternatives to Animal Testing, Berman Institute of Bioethics "In his latest of many books, Bernard Rollin, philosopher and animal advocate extraordinaire, appeals to Aristotle's concept of telos to argue that we need to establish a strong link between commonsense morality and animal ethics. One does not have to be well-versed in philosophical thought nor jargon to understand Rollin's most important message, namely, that when we respect other animals for whom they are and for what they do when they are able to live as freely as possible as the evolved beings they are, we all will be more likely to work together to stop the horrific and brutal abuse to which billions of animals are intentionally and routinely subjected globally each and every day. Indeed, there is no other way to move forward in an increasingly human dominated world in the epoch called the anthropocene, the age of humanity, let's hope that A New Basis for Animal Ethics is not his swan song."--Marc Bekoff, University of Colorado; author of numerous books including Rewilding Our Hearts: Building Pathways of Compassion and Coexistence. --Books in Print

Organic Struggle by Brian Obach
Coming in 02/17/17 -- In the early 1970s, organic farming was an obscure agricultural practice, associated with the counterculture rather than commerce. Today, organic agriculture is a multi-billion dollar industry; organic food can be found on the shelves of every supermarket in America. In Organic Struggle, Brian Obach examines the evolution of the organic movement in the United States, a movement that seeks to transform our system of agriculture and how we think about food. Obach analyzes why the organic movement developed as it did and evaluates its achievements and shortcomings. He identifies how divergent interests within the diverse organic coalition created vulnerabilities for the movement. In particular, he examines the ideological divide between those he calls the "spreaders," who welcome the wider market for organic food and want to work with both government and agribusiness, and the more purist "tillers," who see organic practices as part of a broader social transformation that will take place outside existing institutions. Obach argues that the movement's changing relationship with governmental institutions is crucial to understanding the trajectory of the organic sector. The government-run National Organic Program fostered dramatic growth and deep corporate penetration of the organic market. While many activists were disillusioned by changes in the organic industry that came with corporate and government involvement, Obach sees a failure in the essential market- based strategy adopted by the movement early in its history. He argues for a refocus on policy efforts that can reshape the agricultural system as a whole. Books in Print

Due to arrive in May 2017 -- The risks of global warming are pressing and potentially vast. There is an urgent need to rethink our response to the crisis. To meet that need, a small but increasingly influential group of scientists is exploring proposals for planned human intervention in the climate system, including a stratospheric veil against the sun, the cultivation of photosynthetic plankton, and fleets of unmanned ships seeding the clouds. These are the technologies of geoengineering and, as Oliver Morton argues in The Planet Remade, it would be as irresponsible to ignore them as it would be foolish to see them as a simple solution to the problem. Morton explores the history, politics, and cutting-edge science of geoengineering and weighs the promise and perils of these controversial strategies. He addresses the deep fear that comes with seeing humans as a force of nature, and asks what it might mean--and what it might require of us--to try to use that force for good. --Books in Print

Simplified Guide to Common Colorado Grasses by Janet Wingate
This book is a simplified key to over 100 species of grasses commonly found in Colorado. Since there are over 300 species of grasses in Colorado, many grasses have been omitted. Therefore, it is my hope that the reader will eventually graduate to more detailed, botanical keys, such as my "Illustrated Keys to the Grasses of Colorado." But for the moment, I have tried to provide an easy way to identify some of the common species. --From the Introduction

Society and the Environment by Michael Carolan
***Due July 2016***Preorders welcome*** "An engaging, well-organized, and comprehensive treatment of the core issues in environmental sociology. Carolans conversational style and pragmatic focus will help students connect with the subject rather than become depressed. --Richard York, University of Oregon "Carolan masterfully presents complex environmental problems (and their solutions) in a concise and lucid manner that will hold students attention and spur many good class discussions without becoming overwhelming. This excellent text could form the backbone for any course in environmental sociology, and should be considered for environmental / sustainability courses outside of sociology as well. --Stephanie McSpirit, Eastern Kentucky University Society and the Environment examines todays environmental controversies within a socio-organizational context. After outlining the contours of "pragmatic environmentalism, Carolan considers the pressures that exist where ecology and society collide, such as population growth and its associated increased demands for food and energy. He also investigates how various ecological issues, such as climate change, are affecting our very own personal health. Finally, he drills into the social/structural dynamics--including political economy and the international legal system--that create ongoing momentum for environmental ills. This interdisciplinary text features a three-part structure in each chapter that covers "fast facts about the issue at hand, examines its wide-ranging implications, and offers balanced consideration of possible real-world solutions. New to this edition are "Movement Matters boxes, which showcase grassroots movements that have affected legislation. Discussion questions and key terms enhance the texts usefulness, making Society and the Environment the perfect learning tool for courses on environmental sociology. Michael Carolan is a Faculty Affiliate of the School of Global Environmental Sustainability, member of the Executive Board of the One Health Institute, Professor of Sociology, Chair of the Sociology Department, and Associate Dean for Research at Colorado State University, where he teaches courses in environmental sociology, the sociology of food and agriculture, and social theory. His books include The Real Cost of Cheap Food (Earthscan/Routledge), Reclaiming Food Security (Earthscan/Routledge) and Cheaponomics (Earthscan/Routledge), in addition to publishing over 100 peer-reviewed articles. --Books in Print

Virtual Rivers by Ellen Wohl
Wohl (geology, Colorado State Univ.) presents a case study of the mountain rivers of the Colorado Front Range with a special focus on the upper South Platte River basin and the interactions between human land use and the river systems. The term "virtual" underscores Wohl's interpretation of the current state of the mountain rivers, which have the "appearance of natural rivers but have lost much of a natural river's ecosystem functions" as a result of human land-use patterns during the last two centuries. Organized in chronological order, the chapters demonstrate, with abundant black-and-white photographs and illustrations, how beaver trapping, placer mining, timber harvesting, flow regulation, road and railroad construction, cattle grazing, and other human activities associated with urbanization and other effects of the early 21st century have adversely affected rivers and their ecosystems. Applicable to other mountain river systems around the world, Virtual Rivers shows that we must first realize the scope and nature of the changes in the form and function of rivers that have already occurred if we are to manage the natural resources in the most effective and environmentally sound way now and in the future. Nontechnical language; extensive citations of technical literature; historical analysis. Recommended. All levels. Y. Dilek Miami University --Books in Print
