Volume II of Acer rubrum to Zyzyphus jujuba: Stories & Adventures completes an unintended trilogy of chronicles written by a gadfly forester. The author still possesses an urge to travel and share some of the more interesting stories and events of his 50 years On the road....again!!! during a too short career as a traveling forester. The self proclaimed Footloose Forester is an avid observer of people, places, and events; particularly in the natural world of plants and animals. He purposely chose to record his stories and adventures as undated chronicles.

Volume I of Acer rubrum to Zyzyphus jujuba is a melange of selected stories that relate to Essays and Dreams of the chronicler who most often calls himself The Footloose Forester. The themes range from various essays that were thought out during the waking state, to favored subjects that emanated from dreams and daydreams. As a "stream of consciousness" chronicler who disregards the timeline chronology of the stories about people, places, and events; this book was purposely compiled without a Table of Contents. It should add to the sense of discovery during the reading.

Snatches of memory and whisks of reverie have been the ingredients that were blended into this hopeful fifth memoir that, like the other four, was never intended to be about the author but about the passing scenes, the people, places, and events that he, the self-proclaimed Footloose Forester, witnessed and cherished. The hodgepodge of undated recollections in various places and spanning over 50 years came with learning bits and pieces about archeology, cultures, plants and animals, exotic places, and viewpoints that went beyond everyday experiences. Hence, the title Musings to Memoirs with an enduring masthead Essays, Stories, Adventures, Dreams. Photo evidence has been introduced into individual stories as much as is permissible, to add a clarity of their own. The author hopes that his family and friends will retain warm memories of the past by virtue of the photos alone and where words fail.

This book has been derived from the Arthropod Name Index (ANI) database of CAB INTERNATIONAL. In its current form, the ANI database provides a checklist of about 95,000 names and synonyms, plus details of the position of each species within the hierarchy of arthropod classification. To generate this volume, information for the major Lepidoptera on common names, geographical distribution, host range and status of the recorded pest or beneficial species, has been added. It includes records of about 6,000 species (plus another 6,000 synonyms) of harmful and beneficial Lepidoptera that have been recorded in scientific publications over the past 80 years and abstracted for inclusion in Review of Agricultural Entomology and its predecessors. Most species listed are pests as a result of their larvae feeding on plants, but beneficial species such as the silk moths and species of current or potential use in biological control as predators of mealybugs, scale insects and other pests and weeds, are also included. The host plants listed and information on geographical distribution nevertheless emphasise the insects importance in crop production. The book is thus an essential reference for agricultural entomologists."

The Chronicles of a Footloose Forester were compiled over a number of years, one story at a time. Events, observations, encounters, and episodes were the ingredients in the mix that got filed into his memory banks and extracted years later but only after it was decided to make them into his memoirs. Afghanistan to Zambia: Chronicles of a Footloose Forester (published in 2010) was the first distillation of those memories and was based on an alphabetical recounting of places he had been. In the beginning, there was no intention of putting his chronicles into a book; the alphabetical listing of countries he had visited was, at the time in the early 1960s, only a device to properly respond to inquiries about his travels pursuant to obtaining and updating a yearly security clearance. At one time or another, the FBI, the Army Security Agency, the Department of Agriculture, and the Department of State all wanted his biographical information, which included the places and the addresses where he had lived since 1931. Obviously, that meant every place since he was born. Thus, it was easier to compile a logical listing and to keep that list in his records for easier updating. The countries of Afghanistan and Zambia eventually worked their way into the list; thus, his first book, Afghanistan to Zambia: Chronicles of a Footloose Forester, was chosen as the title of his first book of memoirs. The process is ongoing. Since the travel history to other counties swelled to 106 countries and territories of the United States, the A to Z listing was also a way to compartmentalize some of his fond memories of people, places, and events. As a forester who worked in domestic and international locales, the A to Z listing had other applications for a footloose forester who had a lifelong interest in forest trees and tropical fruits. Accordingly, the second book of chronicles had a title that reminded him that the very common red maple tree (Acer rubrum) could be seen daily from Maine to Florida and everywhere in between in the states he had visited (forty-nine of fifty) during his career. A suitable title for the second book thus began to emerge. An A to Z theme led to bookend tree species names that were also a part of his reveries. It was gratifying to settle on a subtropical fruit tree commonly known as the jujube and with the botanical name Zyzyphus jujuba. Two jujube trees are growing and thriving right next to his house in Virginia. Thus, another A to Z listing became the receptacle that included personal anecdotes about a potpourri of things in other countries and in the natural world in general. The eventual name of his second book of memoirs emphasized his forestry interests, except that the stories that he wanted to share did not dwell solely on trees or on peoples, places, animals, or events. Dreams and viewpoints about abstract subjects that he wanted to share were also summoned, sorted out, and organized into volume 1, Essays & Dreams that was published in 2015. And the personal blogs regarding tangible, physical, sometimes-hair-raising, real-time episodes in reality were written into volume 2, Stories & Adventures that was published in early 2016. Of the 340 blogs that still reside in computer archives, there are perhaps a hundred or so that have not yet been selected for inclusion in another book. This book and its title, A to Z Word Potpourri: Chronicles of a Footloose Forester is the final product. The next job is to make another list and decide which stories, essays, dreams, and adventures might become a suitable fifth book of memoirs that does not require chronology, background history, logical train of thought, or other raison d’être.

This fourth edition of "Soil and Water Conservation for Productivity and Environmental Protection" is even more comprehensive than its predecessors. It explores the hazards posed by water and wind erosion, flooding, sedimentation, and pollution in various types of land use. Situations and examples are drawn from plains, hills, and mountainous settings in America and abroad. Practical, environmental, economic, and legal aspects are considered as they influence the choice of cultural and engineering practices most appropriate for controlling runoff, erosion, and pollution. This book is an appropriate textbook for courses in soil and water conservation. It is also a valuable reference for professional conservationists, land managers, and environmental workers.
