Riassunto: Follow biologist Derek Madden as he explores some of California's most diverse ecosystems.
Most often associated with rich farmland, bountiful orchards, spreading cities, irrigation channels, and well-traveled highways, California's Great Central Valley and nearby Sierra Nevada Foothills have long hosted abundant, varied, and often surprising plant and animal life.
Meet the pickleweed, which survives in intensely alkaline soil by concentrating the salty water on the tips of its branches; lentinus, a hairy-capped mushroom called ''train wrecker'' because it decomposes railroad ties; the river otter, which has nearly one thousand hairs per square inch of skin; and hundreds of other miracles that carry on their ancient lives in a much-changed environment.
Overflowing with fanciful yet accurate illustrations, Magpies and Mayflies delves deep into the natural world of the Central Valley and Foothills.
About the Author: Derek Madden is a professor of biology and the dean of science at Modesto Junior College. He is a recipient of the Charles Spinetta Award for Excellence in Wildlife Art and the Amador Artist Guild Award.
Ecologist Ken Charters has documented the natural history of California for over two decades.
Cathy Snyder is a science education specialist. As both a tenured primary school teacher and an adjunct professor of biology, Snyder has introduced thousands of students to the natural wonders of this region.
