National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Trees--W: Western Region (National Audubon Society Field Guides)

National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Trees--W: Western Region (National Audubon Society Field Guides) Lowest new price: $7.50
Lowest used price: $1.69
List price: $22.95
Author: Elbert L. Little
Brand: Random House

The most comprehensive field guide available to the trees of North America's western region--a must-have for any enthusiast's day pack or home library--from the go-to reference source for over 18 million nature lovers.

Nearly 700 species of trees are detailed in beautiful, full-color photographs of leaf shape, bark, flowers, fruit, and fall leaves, and accompanied by informative text. Both compact and comprehensive, and featuring a durable vinyl binding, this is the ideal field companion for beginner and advanced tree-peepers alike. 

Note: the Eastern Edition generally covers states east of the Rocky Mountains, while the Western Edition covers the Rocky Mountain range and all the states to the west of it.

More than 300 species of trees are found in the United States and Canada west of the Rocky Mountains, some introduced from other continents but many native to the region. This handsome guidebook covers them all, with photographs that enable identification by easily discernible characteristics: by, for example, the shape of the leaf or needle, by the fruit, or by the flower or cone. The photographs are linked to texts that describe a tree's physical characteristics, habitat, and range. Some of the trees covered in this volume are exceedingly rare, such as the Monterey pine; others are locally abundant but limited in range, such as the Joshua tree; still others, such as the quaking aspen, are widespread. This guidebook is an essential addition to any western outdoor enthusiast's collection. --Gregory McNamee

    The Aquaponic Farmer: A Complete Guide to Building and Operating a Commercial Aquaponic System

    The Aquaponic Farmer: A Complete Guide to Building and Operating a Commercial Aquaponic System Lowest new price: $22.00
    Lowest used price: $24.72
    List price: $39.99
    Author: Adrian Southern

    Aquaponic farming―raising fish and vegetables together commercially―is the most promising innovation for a sustainable, profitable, localized food system. Until now, systems have largely focused on warm-water fish such as tilapia. A lack of reliable information for raising fish and vegetables in the cool climates of North America and Europe has been a major stumbling block. The Aquaponic Farmer is the game changer.

    Built around a proven 120-foot greenhouse system operable by one person, the book distills vast experience and complete step-by- step guidance for starting and running a cold-water aquaponics business. Coverage includes:

    • A primer on cold-water aquaponics
    • Pros and cons of different systems
    • Complete design and construction of a Deep Water Culture system
    • Recommended and optional equipment and tools
    • System management, standard operating procedures, and maintenance checklists
    • Maximizing fish and veg production
    • Strategies for successful sales and marketing of fish and plants

    As the only comprehensive commercial cold-water resource, The Aquaponic Farmer is essential for farmers contemplating the aquaponics market, aquaponics gardeners looking to go commercial, and anyone focused on high quality food production.

    Adrian Southern is steeped in all things aquaponic. After years of urban farming and system perfection, he co-founded Raincoast Aquaponics and raises trout and vegetables for a living in the Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island, BC.

    Whelm King is a business manager, project manager, and entrepreneur who has worked in the arts, agriculture, publishing, media, and law. He is co-founder of Raincoast Aquaponics and lives in Nanaimo, BC.

    Potato Improvement Through In Vitro Techniques: Improvement of Potatoes through Meristem Culture, Callus Induction, Somaclonal Variation and In Vitro Tuberization

    Potato Improvement Through In Vitro Techniques: Improvement of Potatoes through Meristem Culture, Callus Induction, Somaclonal Variation and In Vitro Tuberization Lowest new price: $71.66
    Lowest used price: $89.92
    List price: $77.00
    Author: Sk. Amzad Hossain
    Brand: Sk Amzad Hossain

    Different aspects of micropropagation through meristem culture for the production of virus indexed source plants, callus induction followed by subsequent plant regeneration, in vitro tuberization and field evaluation of the in vitro regenerated plants were studied on four commercial cultivars of potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) viz., Diamant, Cardinal, Shilbilati and Lalpakri. Rooted plantlets of four potato cultivars obtained directly through meristem culture and indirectly via callus phase were gradually acclimatized and successfully established in the field. Visual evaluation of the morphological traits of the meristem-derived plants showed that all plants were normal and free from virus diseases. Substantial yield increase was observed from meristem-derived plants over their source plants. Somaclonal variation among different plants derived from callus was observed. The present investigation also addressed in vitro tuberization in potato. The potato plants derived from microtubers of four varieties under field condition was similar to look as that of normal seed propagated plants.
