Praise for The Natural History of the UC Santa Cruz Campus, Second Edition

"The Natural History of the UC Santa Cruz Campus pulls you right in and is a joy to read. I will go further: this kind of local natural history will be an important part of 21st Century biology. It bristles page after page with phenomena that invite research at all levels."
--Edward O. Wilson,
University Research Professor Emeritus, Harvard University

"In an era when human contact with nature is declining, this wonderful book serves as a model for other introductory guides to local natural history. Use it to have more contact with real reality, as opposed to virtual reality. I wish we had a book like this for the Stanford area."
--Paul R. Ehrlich,
Professor of Population Studies, Stanford University
