A new TNOC book review by Mike Houck: Chronically Britain's Urban Nature Movement: A Review of David Goode's Nature in Towns and Cities

http://bit.ly/1FaIDTy
The newest title in The New Naturalist Library, Nature in Towns and Cities by Dr. David Goode, is true to the series’ dual goals of “recapturing the enquiring spirit of the old naturalists” and “maintaining a high standard of accuracy in presenting the results of modern research.” Goode’s scientific background, deep personal interest in urban nature, and long-term involvement in, and advocacy for, Britain’s urban nature movement has created an entertaining and intellectually stimulating read for professional urban ecologists, planners and practitioners, amateur naturalists, and grass-root activists. While the book is specific to Britain, its descriptions of the ecological principles and the manner in which the urban conservation movement has grown over the past three decades, in Britain and beyond, are universally relevant.

It Is Difficult to Take In the Glory of the Dandelion
A new TNOC post by David Maddox

http://bit.ly/1wysRPt
Charles Burchfield (1893–1967) is legendary for his watercolor landscapes. His paintings are typically about nature: swamps and forests and backyards that include plants and birds and insects and rays of light. They are full of shapes and living things. He was also a great journalist and over his lifetime wrote over 10,000 pages in various handmade volumes. It was there, on 5 May 1963, that he wrote: “It is difficult to take in all the glory of the Dandelion, as it is to take in a mountain, or a thunderstorm.” And so they are difficult to take in, both for their beauty and their complexity. How can you describe and assess them? How do you “take in”, measure, communicate, a complicated, multidimensional thing like a mountain? Or a park? Or a community garden? Or a city? How can it be valued? With acts of scientific and social imagination.
