Edelman, Deborah & Merenlender, Adina — You Too May Be a Naturalist

Posted on May 19th, 2013 in Education,Environment,Mendocino County,Science by LeGov

You too may be a naturalist, as we find out in this interview with Deborah Edelman, holder of a Master’s Degree in ecology from the University of California at Davis, and Adina Merenlender, holder a doctorate in biology and a University of California Cooperative Extension Specialist.  Together, along with Greg de Nevers they wrote “The California Naturalist Handbook.”  This handbook is an easy to follow guide as well as a text for anyone with interest in nature.

Deborah Edelman and Adina Merenlender visited the studios of Radio Curious on May 17, 2013. We began our conversation with Adina’s description of what a naturalist does.

The books Deborah Edelman recommends are “Story of Stuff:  The Impact of Overconsumption on the Planet, Our Communities and Our Health-And How We Can Make It Better,” by Annie Leonard, and “The Forest Unseen:  A Year’s Watch in Nature,” by David George Haskell.

The books Adina Merenlender recommends are “The Song of the Dodo:  Island Biogeography in an Age of Extinction,” by David Quammen, and “The Weather Makers:  How Man is Changing the Climate and What It Means for Life on Earth,” by Tim Flannery.

    I believe that is the big thing protecting Facebook as the the #1
    social platform proper now: there’s not a #2 that completely everyone can use.

    I do agree with all the ideas you’ve offered on your post.
    They are really convincing and will definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are
    too quick for newbies. May you please extend them a bit from subsequent time?
    Thank you for the post.

    Superb blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?

    I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go forr a
    paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally overwhelmed ..

    Any tips?Cheers!
