Australia Scribe 2012 1921844876 / 9781921844874 1st Edition Soft Cover Good 12mo 
viii, 177 indexed pages including illustrations. A captivating journey into the inner lives of plants - from the colours they see to the schedules they keep. How does a Venus flytrap know when to snap shut? Can a fern get jet lag? Do roses remember the romance springtime? In What a Plant Knows, renowned biologist Daniel Chamovitz presents a beguiling exploration of how plants experience our shared Earth - in terms of sight, smell, touch, hearing, memory, and even awareness. Combining cutting-edge research with lively storytelling, he explains the intimate details of plant behaviour, from how a willow tree knows when its neighbours have been commandeered by an army of ravenous beetles, and why an avocado ripens when you give it the company of a banana in a bag (it's the pheromones). And he settles the debate over whether the beloved basil on your kitchen windowsill cares whether you play Led Zeppelin or Bach. Whether you are a green thumb, a science buff, a vegetarian, or simply a nature lover, this rare, inside look at the life of plants will surprise and delight you. There is a inscription in the inside front cover.

Vanishing Australians, Garvey, Keith
16 Garvey, Keith Vanishing Australians
Australia Macquarie Publications 1985 0949734101 / 9780949734105 1st Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 4to 
64 pages. Keith Garvey would probably object if voucalled him a born conservationist, but in verses such as these, which carry a lament for our decreasing wild life, Garvey aids the conservationist cause and the protection of our natural heritage. "Vanishing Australians", while depicting appealing animals, has a strong message and is more polished. Kaye Partridge"s superb illustrations, both of common and more rare bush species (many on the endangered list), make the book a delight. An endangered species is an early warning sign of a deteriorating environment, according to the Total Environment Centre. A country which takes care of its endangered fauna accepts responsibility for the future of the environment. lt is this message that Garvey puts so succinctly in his collection of verses and images entitled "Vanishing Australians".
