The most ancient and least disturbed forest ecosystem in eastern North America clings to the vertical cliffs of the Niagara Escarpment. Prior to 1988 it had escaped detection even though the entire forest was in plain view and was being visited by thousands upon thousands of people every year. The reason no one had discovered the forest was that the trees were relatively small and lived on the vertical cliffs of the Niagara Escarpment. "The Last Stand" reveals the complete account of the discovery of this ancient forest, of the miraculous properties of the trees forming this forest (eastern white cedar), and of what is was like for researchers to live, work and study within this forest. The unique story is told with text, with stunning colour photographs and through vivid first-hand accounts. This book will stand the test of time as a testament to science, imagination and discovery. 162pp.

Gullberg, Anders and Isaksson, Karolina
Traffic congestion in big cities is a growing problem, and in the Swedish capital of Stockholm a seven-month long trial period with congestion taxes was carried out in 2006. It has since been made a permanent system. In this book, the authors scrutinise and analyse the political and administrative processes of the first Swedish congestion experiment and its aftermath. The articles point to the fact that traffic policies are implemented for varying purposes, and differing interests can be premiered when designing congestion systems. The authors' analyses are mirrored against collective, international experiences and research. The authors describe the preoccupations, hopes and impressions that came along with the trial period, and how feelings fluctuated among the inhabitants of Stockholm before, during, and after the trial. The book shows how research can and should follow the general trends in societal developments closely. Flexibility is especially important in order to explain problems, and preventing gossip and preconceived ideas from gaining a foothold. The authors hope to provide tools for avoiding the pitfalls, and that the successes of the Stockholm Trial will be repeated in other contexts. 314pp.

In a world largely modified by humans, Fiordland is a breathing space for nature. It is one of the planet's great wilderness areas, where monumental landscapes combine with a mosaic of miniature worlds. Located on the southwest coast of New Zealand, much of its landscape was formed by great valleys carved out by glaciers which are now half-drowned. Milford Sound is one of New Zealand's most remote but necessary tourist destinations, while Dusky Sound provided a home to Captain Cook's Resolution and its scientists, as well as artist William Hodges, for five weeks in 1773. This book is for travellers, nature-lovers and scientists alike. 143pp. N.B. Corners very slightly creased.
