5.0 out of 5 stars If you get one book on larks, make it this, 10 Dec 2004
I've been looking to aquire a decent book on larks for a while now, but they seem a bit thin on the ground. This was before I stumbled into this little jewel of a book.
This book is the cream if you want to know the reasons why our beloved skylark has been in decline. It summarises the work of Dr Paul F Donald, someone who is without doubt the world expert on everything lark.
And for all you tight wads out there, you really get your money's worth-an entire chapter devoted to the lark family.
Without a doubt, a gem of a book, and a lark to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for fans of ganja, 2 Aug 2004
This book does exactly what it says on the cover - it describes some of the best marijuana varieties from the most well known seed breeders.
Sure, you can find all this information on the internet, but this book condenses all the info on all the varieties into a very nicely presented volume.
As well as descriptions of the varieties themselves there are quick references for things like buzz (of which there are many different kinds), flowering time, parent plants, sativa/indica dominance, indoor/outdoor etc, making it very desirable for those who wish to grow cannabis.
As well as all this information you get information on the breeders themselves, and on the history of cannabis and its use throughout the world.
I found some excellent what strains that I will definately be trying out in the not too distant future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Anything but bird-brained..., 10 Feb 2004
Dr Irene Pepperberg is well known for her studies on Alex the Grey Parrot and this book provides a thorough and detailed account of some of the studies on Alex, and some the results show the considerable intelligence of parrots.
Already having a Grey Parrot myself, I found the studies particularly interesting, in the hope of unlocking some of my parrots numerical and communicative abilities.
I wouldn't advise the book for a novice in this area - the language used and the scientific detail of the studies might be confusing.
The book is a detailed and absorbing account of some of the abilities of parrots and anyone with an interest in parrots, animal behaviour would find this book fascinating.
