Plant identification : creating user-friendly field guides for biodiversity management by Anna Lawrence( Book )

5 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An important prerequisite for successful conservation is a good understanding of what we seek to conserve. Nowhere is this more the case than in the fight to protect plant biodiversity which is threatened by human activity in many regions worldwide. This book is written in the belief that tools that enable more people to understand biodiversity can not only aid protection efforts but also contribute to rural livelihoods.

Pharaoh's flowers : the botanical treasures of Tutankhamun by F. N Hepper( Book )

12 editions published between 1990 and 2009 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The golden face of Tutankhamun was garlanded with fresh flowers exquisitely preserved after 3,000 years in his innermost coffin. In the tomb a model of a granary was found full to the brim with seeds -- emmer wheat, fenugreek and chick-pea. Brooms of reed and grass used to tidy up after the burial remained intact. Usually ignored by grave robbers intent on gold, baskets, fabrics and papyri, timber and unguent vases buried with Tutankhamun have survived. Each chapter ofPharaoh's Flowerscarries detailed descriptions of the plant species found or represented in the tomb. The plants and flowers of ancient Egypt are brought back to life in this botanical exploration of the Pharaoh's tomb. This new, second edition of this important and fascinating book, first published in 1990,has been fully updated, to take account of recent finds and interpretations. New features include: a revised and annotated Further Reading section, now with a guide to websites; a glossary of botanical terms; a new diagram of the tomb; additional illustrations; and a Bible References section, keyed to the main text, with quotations from the Old Testament that illuminate ancient botanical knowledge and practices
Carving out a future : forests, livelihoods and the international woodcarving trade by Brian M Belcher( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Very little has yet been written about the cultural or economic contributions of woodcarving to people's livelihoods or the consequences of felling hardwood and softwood trees for the international woodcarving trade. Carving Out a Future is the first examination of this trade and its critical links to rural livelihoods, biodiversity, conservation, forestry and the international trade regime. A range of case studies from Australia, Bali, India, Africa and Mexico provides a lens for examining the critical issues relating to the significant impacts of woodcarving on forests, conservation efforts, the need to promote sustainable rural livelihoods and efforts to promote trade so that skilled artisans in developing countries get a fair economic return."--Jacket

"This charming short story by one of the greatest literary figures of the 20th century, Virgina Woolf, is set on a hot July day in Kew Gardens.
