Identify maple, ash, oak, and more with easy-to-learn visual techniques. In this friendly and approachable field guide, writer and avid hiker Mark Mikolas shares a unique approach for year-round tree identification. His method, which centers on the northeastern United States where 20 species make up the majority of trees, will prepare readers to recognize trees at a glance, even in winter when leaves and flowers are not present. Mikolas’s secret is to focus on the key characteristics of each tree—black cherry bark looks like burnt potato chips; beech and oak trees keep their leaves in winter; spruce needles are pointed while balsam fir needles are soft and rounded at the ends. Some trees can even be identified by scent. Location maps for each of the 40 species covered and more than 400 photographs illustrating key characteristics make the trees easy to identify. Mikolas also explains how to differentiate between similar and commonly confused trees, such as red maple and sugar maple. A Beginner’s Guide to Recognizing Trees of the Northeast is a book to keep close at hand wherever trees grow.

Seit über siebzig Jahren verzaubert Ein Baum wächst in Brooklyn weltweit neue Leserinnen und Leser. Dieser Roman über ein Mädchen, das gegen alle Hindernisse anliest, ist nun endlich wieder auf Deutsch erhältlich – eine Geschichte, erfüllt von Lebenslust und Kraft, beseelt von der Euphorie über das Sein. Die elfjährige Francie Nolan ist eine unbändige Leserin, eine Süßigkeiten-Connaisseuse, eine genaue Beobachterin der menschlichen Natur – und sie hat einen Traum: Sie möchte Schriftstellerin werden. Ein Traum, der in dem bunten, ruppigen Williamsburg von 1912 kaum zu erfüllen ist. Hier brummen die Mietshäuser vor all den Zugewanderten, jeden Tag wird von hart verdientem Geld das Essen zusammengeklaubt, Kinder strömen durch die Straßen, um für ein paar Pennies Süßigkeiten zu ergattern. Doch wenn Francie auf der Feuertreppe in der Sonne sitzt und liest, gibt es für sie keinen schöneren Ort. Und wenn sie auch gegen so manche Widrigkeit anschreiben muss, ist sie sich einer Sache gewiss: dass es sich immer lohnt, nach dem puren Leben zu streben.

Das Mädchen Kiêu von Nguyên Du

„Das Mädchen Kiêu" wird nicht nur wegen seiner fortschrittlichen Thematik eins der bewunderungswürdigsten Denkmäler vietnamesischer Dichtkunst bleiben. Wie kein zweiter hat es Nguyên Du verstanden, die volkstümliche vietnamesische Versschöpfung mit der gediegenen Kultur chinesischer Klassik zu verbinden. Seine literarischen Gemälde finden in der vietnamesischen Poesie nicht ihresgleichen. Die Frische eines Frühlingsspaziergangs, die Schrecknisse einer unheilvollen Nacht, die Empfindungen eines keuschen Mädchens, die niedrige Gier eines Bordellbesitzers — es gibt kein Bild, das die Feder des Dichters nicht mit vortrefflicher Leichtigkeit zeichnet. Die Geschichte der Thuy Kiêu ist ein nachahmenswertes Beispiel, wie die Sprache des Volkes zur vollendeten künstlerischen Aussage gelangen kann.

This major expansion and revision of W. C. Muenscher's popular reference work brings a wealth of botanical knowledge up to date in an easy-to-access format. Muenscher's Keys to Woody Plants enables its users to identify trees and shrubs in all seasons by means of diagnostic field characteristics including leaves, fruits, buds, twigs, and bark.Keys to Woody Plants was first published privately in 1922; Cornell University Press published the sixth edition in 1950. The new and expanded version of this classic identification tool for horticulturists, botanists, foresters, and ecologists treats 335 genera and 1,156 species of woody plants found in the northeastern United States. This is more than double the number covered by Muenscher's sixth edition and includes 570 cultivated species. Edward A. Cope's revision:* teaches concepts and terms necessary to all botanical identification* retains the simple structure of Muenscher's original keys* brings the nomenclature into line with current use* provides both a comprehensive key—including native, introduced, and cultivated species—and, for ease of use in the field, a separate key devoted to native and naturalized introduced species.*meets the needs of both novices and seasoned professionals * includes a bibliography of resources that allow the reader to move beyond identification and learn more about the woody plants

There are thousands of moth species in the northeast of North America, and while it might seem that they are all drab grays and browns, there is actually a startling variety. They come in a rainbow of colors, from brilliant oranges and pinks to soft greens and violets. There are moths with colorful leopard-like spots, and ones that look more like B-movie aliens; some that are as large as your hand, and others the size of a grain of rice. With helpful tips on how to attract and identify moths, range maps and season graphs showing when and where to find each species, and clear photographs that use the unique Peterson arrow system for easy identification, this guide provides everything an amateur or experienced moth-watcher needs.
