i can finally say something

Maine’s natural community classification has been published!
bookcover_front_small

3000 copies arrived two weeks ago, but we’ve been figuring out distribution, etc.
bookdelivery (1) bookdelivery (19)
97 boxes went from the delivery truck, one hand truck load at a time by our staff, to sit on our second floor hall. They are flying out of the office, and they haven’t even hit bookstores or libraries yet (but they will).

I was totally like a kid at Christmas the day they were delivered, and it’s been hard to stay quiet!

Though I’m not an author, I worked to get a super techie draft document into an attractive and approachable book that a lay person with some interest in natural communities (i.e., the different types of forests, wetlands, open areas) might like to have. We hired a layout guy who did an absolutely fabulous job. It’s printed on triple-certified recycled paper. It has a ton of great photos. I have to re-do some things on the website, but you can see samples of the community descriptions from this page, but be sure to click on the downloadable pdf once you go to a description… that’s where you’ll see a bit of what the book is like.

And now, for some totally dorky botanical nonsense,
