This beautifully illustrated guide identifies nearly 300 common plants in Indiana's most prominent ecosystem—the Eastern Deciduous Forest. For ease of identification, the plants are arranged by flower color or growth form, providing a convenient way to distinguish a great majority of plants in any given woodland. Generous treatment is given to all major vascular plant groups of the forest, such as wildflowers, ferns, shrubs, trees, grasses, and sedges. Michael A. Homoya not only helps with identification, but also offers information on a plant's habitat, flowering period, familial relationships, biology, and connections to Indiana. For the garden enthusiast and habitat restorer, there is a section on landscaping and natural community restoration using native forest plants. A portion of the proceeds from each sale of this book go to the Indiana Department of Natural Resources for land protection and stewardship.

The Red River Gorge's intricate canyon system features an abundance of high sandstone cliffs, rock shelters, waterfalls, and natural bridges, making it one of the world's top rock-climbing destinations. The Gorge, known for its unspoiled scenic beauty and numerous hiking trails, is one of Kentucky's most popular natural destinations, attracting over 500,000 visitors a year. While books about hiking, climbing, and other recreational activities in the area are readily available, Wildflowers and Ferns of Red River Gorge is the first book specifically devoted to the biodiversity of the Gorge and its watershed. Authors Dan and Judy Dourson introduce the geology and cultural history of the gorge but focus on the incredible diversity of both common and rare flora of this unique ecosystem. With over 1,000 color images and numerous illustrations covering over 1,500 species currently known to exist in the watershed, Wildflowers and Ferns of Red River Gorge is designed to be accessible to the casual hiker and of use to the seasoned naturalist. Rare and endangered species are highlighted as well as a few other important, but often ignored, non-flowering plant groups, including green algae, fungi, slime molds, lichens, and mosses. In addition, a small section on flowering woody vines, shrubs, and trees is included, making the book the most comprehensive natural guide to one of Kentucky's most well-known natural recreational areas.

In seinem zu Diskussionen anregenden Werk kritisiert Alvin H. Rosenfeld die Zunahme von Büchern, Filmen, Fernsehsendungen, Ausstellungen und öffentlichen Gedenkveranstaltungen zum Holocaust. Es grenze an Perversität, dass damit eine Verunglimpfung des Gedenkens an den Holocaust und eine Schwächung seiner Bedeutung verbunden sei. Rosenfeld untersucht eine große Bandbreite von Geschehnissen und kulturellen Phänomenen – so etwa Ronald Reagans Besuch des Friedhofes in Bitburg 1985, die Entstellungen der Geschichte von Anne Frank sowie die Art und Weise, in der der Holocaust von Künstlern und Filmproduzenten wie Judy Chicago und Steven Spielberg dargestellt wird. Er zeigt die kulturellen Kräfte auf, die den Holocaust in der allgemeinen Wahrnehmung heruntergespielt haben. Als Kontrast dazu präsentiert der Autor sachliche Darstellungen aus der Feder von Holocaust-Zeugen wie Jean Améry, Primo Levi, Elie Wiesel und Imre Kertész. Das Buch schließt mit einer eindringlichen Warnung vor den möglichen Konsequenzen eines „Endes des Holocaust“ im öffentlichen Bewusstsein.

Maggie Nelson kennt alle Schattierungen und Geheimnisse der Farbe Blau – stolz hütet sie ihre Sammlung blauer Objekte –, und sie kennt alle Künstler, die dem Blau verfallen waren: ob Joni Mitchell, Billie Holiday oder Yves Klein. Aber zugleich nutzt sie die Farbe, um sich selbst zu erkunden. Denn hinter all dem Nachsinnen über Blau verbirgt sich die Geschichte einer tragischen Liebe. Er, der Prinz des Blauen, hat sie verlassen. Also gibt sie sich mit ganzer Kraft dem hin, was von ihm übrig ist: dem Blau. Kaum jemand hat seinen Schmerz auf so poetische, inspirierende Weise seziert, wie Maggie Nelson es hier tut – eine lyrische, philosophische und sehr persönliche Erkundung der eigenen Leidensfähigkeit.

The second in a series of four illustrated guides to identifying aquatic and standing water plants in the central Midwest, this convenient reference volume includes descriptions, nomenclature, ecological information, and identification keys to plants in all of the monocot families except sedges— which are covered in the first volume in the series— that are found in Kentucky (except for the Cumberland region), Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, and Nebraska. Monocots covered in this volume include ferns, conifers, grasses, rushes, orchids, duckweeds, irises, sweet flags, arrowheads, aroids, flowering rushes, pipeworts, frog-bits, arrowgrasses, naiads, pickerelweeds, pondweeds, bur reeds, cattails, and yellow-eyed grasses. Robert H. Mohlenbrock includes three types of plants: submergents, those that spend their entire lives with their vegetative parts either completely submerged or at least floating on the water’ s surface; emergents, which are typically rooted underwater with their vegetative parts standing out of water; and a third category of plants that live most of their lives out of water, but which may live in water at least three months a year. With taxa arranged alphabetically, the volume is well organized and easy to use. In addition, basic synonymy, description, distribution, comments, and line drawings show the habits and distinguishing features for each plant. Habitat and nomenclatural notes are also listed, as are the official wetland designations given by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Filicineae, Gymnospermae, and Other Monocots, Excluding Cyperaceae is a useful standard reference for state and federal employees who deal with both aquatic and wetland plants and environmental conservation and mitigation issues. It is furthermore an essential guide for students and instructors in college and university courses focusing on the identification of aquatic and wetland plants.
