In the late 19th century, Eugene Scheifflin, prosperous New York drug manufacturer, amateur ornithologist and Shakespeare enthusiast, had a plan: to inventory, import and naturalize every bird mentioned by the Bard. Unfortunately for North American farmers and indigenous birds, Henry IV, Part 1 contains a reference to the starling. In 1890, Scheifflin released 40 pairs of European starlings into Central Park. A year later, the birds had already colonized Staten Island. It took the starlings just 55 years to establish themselves from coast to coast and north to Alaska, decimating many native species, including the bluebird. Concrete Jungle examines this story and myriad other examples of the unpredictable mutations and side-effects that have taken place as urban environments and Nature meet and sometimes collide

Future evolution by Peter D Ward( Book )
2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Describing mass extinction as the primary catalyst for evolutionary change throughout our planet's history, the author argues that we are well into the extinction phase of the Age of Megamammals and that future evolution will be seriously hampered by the lack of species diversity. He also predicts humankind's evolving alongside machines, in company with genetically altered plants that will infest the world as weeds and cloned animal species devoid of any evolutionary spark

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
"This ambitious, interdisciplinary project inspires artistic, environmental, economic, and social conversations surrounding an urgent 21st century topic: "What is green and what is sustainable?" Green Horizons invites the discussion of complex issues, including community, prophecy, humankind's often-unintentional impact on local and global ecosystems, and how we react to those impacts. The exhibition embraces these issues as its main themes through wich other artworks will explore the politics, nature, and spirit of environmentalism, breaking the mold and paradigm of traditionally conceived museum exhibitions"--Exhibition flyer, page [2]
Carnivorous nights : on the trail of the Tasmanian tiger by Margaret Mittelbach( file )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Packing an off-kilter sense of humor and keen scientific minds, authors Margaret Mittelbach and Michael Crewdson take off with renowned artist Alexis Rockman on a postmodern safari. Their mission' Tracking down the elusive Tasmanian tiger. This mysterious, striped predator was once the world's largest carnivorous marsupial. It had a pouch like a kangaroo and a jaw that opened impossibly wide to reveal terrifying choppers. Tragically, this rare and powerful animal was hunted into extinction in the early part of the twentieth century. Or was it' Journeying first to the Australian mainland and then south to the wild island of Tasmania, these young naturalists brave a series of bizarre misadventures and uproarious wildlife encounters in their obsessive search for the long-lost beast. From an ancient cave featuring an aboriginal painting of the tiger to a lab in Sydney where maverick scientists are trying to resurrect the animal through cloning, this intrepid trio comes face-to-face with blood-sucking land leeches and venomous bull ants, a misbehaving wallaby who invades their motel room, and a crew of flesh-eating, bone-crunching Tasmanian devils gorging on roadkill. They bond with trappers, bushwackers, and wildlife experts who refuse to abandon the tiger hunt, despite the paucity of evidence. Sifting through local myths, bar-room banter, and historical accounts, these environmental detectives sweep readers into a world where platypus' swim, kangaroos roam, and a large predator with a pouch was'or perhaps still is'queen of the jungle. Filled with Alexis Rockman's stunning drawings of flora and fauna'-made from soil, wombat scat, and the artist's own blood'Carnivorous Nights is a hip and hilarious account of an unhinged safari, as well as a fascinating portrayal of a wildly unique part of the world.
