Nature heals! This compact field guide introduces readers to 26 common Canadian wild plants with extraordinary healing properties. Use arnica blossoms to heal muscle inflammation, improve digestion with chickweed and soothe a toothache with yarrow root--learning to identify and use wild medicinal plants is both fascinating and useful.

Each plant profile includes a colour photograph, identification and habitat information, as well as medicinal, cosmetic and culinary uses. Skilled herbalist Beverley Gray also includes tips on how to sustainably gather and safely use beneficial wild plants.

Plants of the Virgin Mountains is a compact field guide to the common plants found in Arizona's northwest corner (and adjoining Nevada and southern Utah). The rugged Virgin Mountain range encompasses plants of the Mohave desert like Joshua tree, creosote bush, and various cacti, to high mountain forest with ponderosa pine and Douglas fir. This elevational gradient adds to the diversity of habitats and their associated plants, making the range of interest to botanists, naturalists, and explorers. Covered in the book are 28 trees and shrubs, 12 types of cactus and cactus-like plants, and 26 species of herbaceous plants ("wildflowers"). Each plant is illustrated with a line drawing and described in non-technical terms, with information added on any human or wildlife use of the plant. An illustrated glossary and a section describing the range's various ecosystems is included. Although not a complete flora of the Virgin Mountains, this book serves as a handy introduction to many of the common (and colorful) plants a visitor to the area is likely to see.

Plants form a fundamental element of the biosphere, and the evolution of plants has directly affected the evolution of animal life and the evolution of the Earth's climate. Plants have also become essential to humans not only in the form of cereal crops, fruit, and vegetables, but in their many other uses in wood and paper, and in providing medicines. Their aesthetic importance too in our parks and gardens as well as in wildflower meadows and great forests should not be underestimated. In this Very Short Introduction Timothy Walker, Director of the Botanical Gardens in Oxford, provides a concise account of the nature of plants, their variety, their evolution, and their importance and uses, stressing the need and efforts for their conservation for future generations. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.


The Shades Of The Wilderness

A train of wagons and men wound slowly over the hills in the darkness and rain toward the South. In the wagons lay fourteen or fifteen thousand wounded soldiers, but they made little noise, as the wheels sank suddenly in the mud or bumped over stones. Although the vast majority of them were young, boys or not much more, they had learned to be masters of themselves, and they suffered in silence, save when some one, lost in fever, uttered a groan.


Chemical And Process Plant Commissioning Handbook

RRP $48.00

Process intensification (PI) leads to a substantially smaller, cleaner, safer and more energy efficient process technology. For example, the scale reduction made possible by using high gravity fields to separate liquids has seen the reduction of distillation columns from 75m to a four of five metres in height in some areas.

PI is a hot topic in chemical and process engineering - and beyond - and is now reaching a maturity that is seeing PI concepts applied to a wide range of processes and technologies. This is the first book to provide a practical working guide to understanding PI and developing successful PI solutions and applications.

By demonstrating the broad application of PI this book will be of value to audiences looking to take current technologies into new process areas as well as those looking to further its use in the chemical engineering sector.

As well as detailing technologies and practical applications the book focusses on safety, energy and environmental issues, giving guidance on how to incorporate PI in plant design and operation safely, efficiently and effectively.

This book provides up to date access to the best current information on PI, both through the world-class experience of the authors and by pinpointing other significant sources of data, equipment and expertise.



* Shows chemical and process engineers how to apply process intensification (PI) to their product, process or production line
* A hard-working reference and user guide to the technology AND application of PI, covering fundamentals, industry applications, and supplemented my an development and implementation guide
* Leading author team, including Professor Colin Ramshaw, developer of the HiGee high gravity distillation process at ICI, who is widely credited as the father of PI
