An Island by Itself
Building on the success of their earlier work, The Cypress Hills: The Land and its People, Hildebrandt and Hubner revisit the hills and bring new and updated material to this book.
Challenging myths about a peaceful west and prairie exceptionalism, the book explores the substance of prairie legal history and the degree to which the region's mentality is rooted in the historical experience of distinctive prairie peoples.
The most common and important insects, diseases, and other damaging agents of forest trees in the Canadian prairie provinces are described in terms of their symptoms and signs, distribution, hosts, disease (life) cycle, and damage. These are illustrated with colour photographs for easy identification. The book is divided into three major colour-coded sections: one for insects and diseases of conifers, one for insects and diseases of hardwoods, and one for other damaging agents. A host index listing pest species and disorders by host species and part of host affected, a glossary of technical terms, a general reference section, and a general index listing common and scientific names of hosts and pests as well as other damaging agents are also included.
