THE BEEKEEPERS : HOW HUMANS CHANGED THE WORLD OF BUMBLE BEES
by Church, Dana L., author.
J 595.799 CHU
"Bumble bees are rather charming, buzzing from flower to flower with their furry black and yellow bodies. Depending on where you live, the bees you see might be escapees from a greenhouse or "bumble bee factory." They might even be descendants of stowaways on Viking ships. Thanks to humans, bumble bees are world travelers, spreading to countries that never hosted bumble bees before. For centuries these insects pollinated our crops. But are they pushing out native pollinators? Why are some species of bumble bees flourishing whereas others are floundering, to the point of possibly disappearing forever? Dana Church's narrative nonfiction explores these questions and tells the tale of bumble bees' history with humans. She highlights the interconnectedness of the two species, and touches on the topics of endangerment and extinction, the impact on human agriculture, bumble bee habitats and ecology, and the current crisis of bee protection. With a call to action for young people to become knowledgeable about our natural world and involved in its preservation, it's a hopeful and accessible guide to our history with these teddy bears of the insect world"-- Provided by publisher.

THE LOST FOREST
by Root, Phyllis, author.
J 917.76 ROO
"The story of a forest "lost" by a surveying error-and all the flora and fauna to be found there. A forest, of course, doesn't need a map to know where to grow. But people need a map to find it. And in 1882 when surveyors set out to map a part of Minnesota, they got confused, or tired and cold (it was November), and somehow mapped a great swath of ancient trees as a lake. For more than seventy-five years, the mistake stayed on the map, and the forest remained safe from logging-no lumber baron expects to find timber in a lake, after all. The Lost Forest tells the story of this lucky error and of the 144 acres of old-growth red and white pine it preserved. With gentle humor, Phyllis Root introduces readers to the men at their daunting task, trekking across Minnesota, measuring and marking the vast land into townships and sections and quarters. She takes us deep into a stand of virgin pine, one of the last and largest in the state, where U.S. history and natural history meet. With the help of Betsy Bowen's finely observed and beautiful illustrations, she shows us all the life that can be found in the Lost Forest. Accompanying the story is a wealth of information about the Cadastral Survey and about the plants and animals that inhabit forests-making the book a valuable guide for readers who might want to look even deeper into the history of Minnesota, the flora and fauna of old-growth forests, and the apportioning of land in America." -- ONIX annotation.
