Bringing Nature Home: How You Can Sustain Wildlife with Native Plants by Douglas Tallamy
Bringing Nature Home: How You Can Sustain Wildlife with Native Plants

Jenafur369, March 14, 2009

This is an eye-opening book for anyone who is at all interested in bringing back the biodiversity in their sterile gardens, yards, homes, fields, neighborhoods and country. Douglas W. Tallamy shows how a little interest breeds knowledge and compassion for all living things that our planet relies on for survival. His book goes in depth on how we have created a non-functional world of mowed lawns, invasive species, and sterlie environments that are bringing thousands of species to extinction. He goes on to tell how you can make a difference by what you plant in your yard and the positive effects of creating a ecologically diverse world.
