An advocate for wildlife and nature conservation, I write about plants, animals, and natural landscapes. My experiences with the vegetation ecology of North American deserts, forests, and coasts have made it clear that disastrous changes are occurring. I write and blog to draw attention to what’s going on and encourage others to join in the defense of nature. Here’s a summary of my curriculum vitae.

Poirot the Parrot
When my daughter was small, I told her stories about a foolish young parrot named Poirot (Pwä-rōw). A few years ago I began compiling a set of the stories for her and my son to read to their children. I found that retelling the stories helped make them more interesting. It is best to do this at bedtime when children will do anything to avoid going to sleep. Here’s the link to a PDF copy of Bees and Birthday Cake–How Poirot Lost a Tail Feather.
