Bugs Britannica by Peter Marren ( Book )
3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A comprehensive look at invertebrates that proves it's the little things that count, this essential and accessible work on bugs is not a biological guide but a richly illustrated cultural one, seen through the eyes of writers, musicians, artists, and naturalists--from the great Tudor naturalist Thomas Muffet, father of Little Miss Muffet, to Irvine Welsh's talking tapeworm in "Filth"--as well as contributions by ordinary men and women who are fascinated by creepy crawlies of all kinds
Birds Britannica by Mark Cocker ( Book )
4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Birds Britannica is a publication of immense importance. Neither an identification guide nor a behavioural study (although both these subjects enter its field), it concentrates on our social history and on the cultural links between humans and birds." "What makes Birds Britannica of special significance is the inclusion of observations and experiences from more than 1,000 naturalists and bird lovers. These contributions from the public touch on avian ecology; the lore and language of birds; their myths, the art and literature they have inspired; birds as food; and the crucial role they play in our sense of place and the changing seasons." "Birds Britannica has taken eight years to research and write, and has been assembled by a team which includes some of the finest writers and imagemakers of British wildlife. On one level, it is a collection of humorous stories, field observations and tales of joy, wonder and occasional woe; on another, it is a nationwide chronicle."--BOOK JACKET

Weeds : how vagabond plants gatecrashed civilisation and changed the way we think about nature by Richard Mabey ( Book )
11 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Weeds survive, entombed in the soil, for centuries. They are as persistent and pervasive as myths. They ride out ice ages, agricultural revolutions, global wars. They mark the tracks of human movements across continents as indelibly as languages. Yet to humans they are the scourge of our gardens, saboteurs of our best-laid plans. They rob crops of nourishment, ruin the exquisite visions of garden designers, and make unpleasant and impenetrable hiding places for urban ne'er-do-wells.Weeds can be destructive and troubling, but they can also be beautiful, and they are the prototypes of most of th
