Another recommended book: 'tree parents live together with their children, communicate with them, support them as they grow, share nutrients with those that are sick or struggling, and warn them of dangers.' Whoa! This will change the way you think of forests. #forestchildren #weareconnectedtoeverything #plantshavefeelingstoo #thehiddenlifeoftrees
White wash by Carey Gilliam is an eye opener as to the dangers of glyphosate and how Monsanto continues to corrupt the EPA as well as paying many 'non' biased scientists to defend it. How can we trust pesticides that are approved using data from science done by the chemical companies? #whitewash #careygilliam #glyphosate #corruptionofscience
Elton started coined the invasive species concept and I'd thought his book would be filled with scary stories. Indeed, it starts by talking about species similar to nuclear explosions. But he also cautions about the use of chemicals to manage roadsides and says we will need to accept new arrivals. Where is the debate now 60 years after this book? #invasivespecies #charleselton #nativenonnative #spontaneousurbanplants #nuclearexplosion
