This is an illustrated guide to varieties, cultivation and care, with step-by-step instructions and over 145 stunning photographs. It features a directory of over 50 varieties of succulents, including Agave, Aloe, Cotyledon, Euphorbia, Haworthia, Kalanchoe, Lithops, Sedum and Testudinaria. It features step-by-step photographic guidance on planting, repotting, propagation by seeds and cuttings, everyday maintenance, and common pests and diseases. For each variety, full botanical information is provided on growth, spread, size and flowering, as well as suggestions for other recommended species to try. One of the great wonders of nature is the ability of plants to adapt and survive in the harshest of environments. Growing mostly in desert areas, succulents provide many fascinating examples of this. Among this plant group there is an astonishing variety of size, shape and hue to be found, ranging from Testudinaria elephantipes, with its swollen hemispherical wooden base, to stone plants such as Lithops, that are little more than a pair of swollen leaves. This book features 50 of the best varieties, and explains how to cultivate and care for them. Hardy and stoical, but also immensely varied, every grower will find a succulent to suit their tastes.

Der britische Biologe Dave Goulson unternimmt eine Expedition auf den Planeten der Insekten – genauer auf die Blumenwiesen rund um sein marodes französisches Landhaus. Die Helden seiner Feldforschungsabenteuer sind nicht nur Bienen und Hummeln, sondern alles, was kreucht und fleucht: Grillen, Grashüpfer, Glühwürmchen – und Libellen, denen beim Liebemachen zuzusehen eine Freude ist. Goulson taucht dabei so tief ins Reich der Tiere ein wie kaum jemand zuvor. Ein Buch, das die entscheidende Bedeutung von Insekten für unsere Umwelt und das ganze globale Ökosystem beleuchtet. Und ein Weckruf, die Nutzung von Insektiziden zurückzufahren, um das Sterben der Bienen und anderer Bestäuber zu stoppen.

Je nachdrücklicher die 17-jährige Louisa ihre geistige Gesundheit beteuert, desto weniger glaubt man ihr – und desto schlimmer wird ihre Situation. Denn Louisa ist in einer Irrenanstalt gelandet. Warum, kann sie nur ahnen. Weil sie anders ist? Weil sie als Mädchen einen Beruf erlernen will – was im viktorianischen England einem Sakrileg gleichkommt. Und wer steckt hinter ihrer Einweisung? Diese Ungewissheit und die demütigenden Schikanen zermürben Louisa. Wäre da nicht die junge Pflegerin Eliza, würde Louisa sogar an Selbstmord denken.
