Fashioned by the violent volcanism of the Pacific Rim of Fire, plate tectonics, and the sculptural magic wrought by Ice Age glaciers, the Salish Sea straddles the western border between Canada and the United States and is connected to the Pacific Ocean primarily through the Strait of Juan de Fuca. This wondrous watery world has its beginnings high in the landscape, where rivulets of melting snow nourish the cascading streams, rivers, and mountains that surround it. The Salish Sea is fed by the almost constant influx of freshwater from British Columbia's Fraser River and thousands of smaller rivers and streams on both sides of the border. The mixing of freshwater and salt water provides the essential building blocks for the region's extraordinary biodiversity. This fascinating visual journey through the Salish Sea combines a scientist's inquiring mind, dramatic photographs, and a lively narrative of compelling stories, all of which impart a sense of wonder for this intricate marine ecosystem and the life that it sustains.

Storytelling has the capacity to address feelings and demonstrate themes – to illuminate beyond argument and theoretical exposition. In Otter’s Journey, Borrows makes use of the Anishinaabe tradition of storytelling to explore how the work in Indigenous language revitalization can inform the emerging field of Indigenous legal revitalization. She follows Otter, a dodem (clan) relation from the Chippewas of Nawash First Nation, on a journey across Anishinaabe, Inuit, Māori, Coast Salish, and Abenaki territories, through a narrative of Indigenous resurgence. In doing so, she reveals that the processes, philosophies, and practices flowing from Indigenous languages and laws can emerge from under the layers of colonial laws, policies, and languages to become guiding principles in people’s contemporary lives.

This volume provides a background and history of living shorelines, understandings on management, policy, and project designs, technical synthesis of the science related to living shorelines including insights from new studies, and the identification of research needs, lessons learned, and perspectives on future guidance. International perspectives are presented from leading researchers and managers in the East, West and Gulf coasts of the United States, Europe, Canada, and Australia that are working on natural approaches to shoreline management. The broad geographic scope and interdisciplinary nature of contributing authors will help to facilitate dialogue and transfer knowledge among different disciplines and across different regions. This book will provide coastal communities with the scientific foundation and practical guidance necessary to implement effective shoreline management that enhances ecosystem services and coastal resilience now and into the future.

An immense pathway of avian migration tracks along the west coasts of North and South America, encompassing half the circumference of the globe. Experience and understand the wonders and the science of bird migration in this richly visual book. Why do some birds travel from the arctic to the Antarctic--and back again--each year? By telling the stories of waterbirds--including the Arctic Tern, Western Sandpiper, and Harlequin Duck--and the places where they touch down, the delicate miracle of migration is revealed. As the book follows these birds from breeding grounds in the north to wintering locales in the south, the grand ecosystem of the whole west coast of the Pacific comes into view. River estuaries, wetlands, beaches, and lakes matter because where there's mud, there's food for birds. Migrating birds have evolved into highly efficient long-range flyers- light bones, strong muscles, broad wings, and fat (they metabolize a special kind that doesn't contain water, so it's light). The Pacific Flyway perfectly blends amazing photography, science writing, and storytelling to invite readers to feel part of a much bigger world.

Karanovo is known as one of the most outstanding prehistoric sites in South-Eastern Europe. Unfortunately, little of the material which was found during the 1947-1957 excavations has been published. A new project has been carrying out excavations since 1984, led by a joint Bulgarian-Austrian team. The aim is to provide a more detailed picture of the stratigraphy and small finds. This is the first volume on the recent excavations, containing the results from work carried out between 1984 and 1992. A great deal of Neolithic material was found, particularly from the Early Neolithic period : but there were also rich deposits from Chalcolithic and Early Bronze Age pits.
