Abstract: This annual grows out of deep concern that human actions are destroying many of the living species, both plant and animal, with which we share this planet. It seeks both to sound an alarm and document the extent of the problem, and to suggest what we can do to stop what is happening. In "The fate of forests: A time to choose" Dan Hemenway traces what is happening to our trees, starting with his home community in Massachusetts, and moving out to consider the planetary view. Typically, this survey article ends with a lists of suggestions about "What You Can Do to Help the Forests". Much of the volume is devoted to specific ways of growing things in an ecologically organic way. There are articles on aquaculture, wild plant foods, an extensive listing giving the climatic requirements of 1000 different species. A substantial part of the book is devoted to an excellent listings of resource groups and information.
