A Natural History of the Santa Catalina Mountains, Arizona: with an Introduction to the Madrean Sky Islands

A Natural History of the Santa Catalina Mountains, Arizona:
with an Introduction to the Madrean Sky Islands
, By Richard C. Brusca and Wendy Moore
Foreword by Bill Broyles

This watershed book takes us behind the picture-postcard views and into the landscape, where we can understand, appreciate, and enjoy the natural history of the spectacular Santa Catalina Mountains. Its vividly illustrated chapters and nine picture guides (featuring native flora and fauna) paint a rich portrait of this famous range. In clear, everyday language the authors explain just what the Sky Islands are, telling the story of when and how they came to be — their deep geologic and biotic history. They also describe ten stops along the Mt. Lemmon Highway where visitors can easily see and understand the eight major biomes found in this range. Hundreds of photos, a dozen maps and figures, and more than two dozen stand-alone profiles highlight special places, people, or elements of the Catalinas and Sky Island Region. more...


Sea Turtles of the Eastern Pacific

Sea Turtles of the Eastern Pacific: Advances in Research and Conservation, Foreword by Peter C. H. Pritchard; Edited by Jeffrey A Seminoff; Bryan P Wallace

Sea turtles are flagship species for the world's oceans. They traverse international boundaries during their migrations, serve as vehicles for marine nutrients to terrestrial habitats, and embody the often tenuous relationship between human action and ecosystem health. The East Pacific Ocean is home to some of the most dynamic marine ecosystems, and the most unique sea turtles. Marine biodiversity within this massive ocean region abounds in mangrove estuaries, seagrass pastures, coral reefs, the open ocean, and many other habitats, with sea turtles often the most conspicuous species present.
