Das Ende des amerikanischen Traums Nach einer Folge von verheerenden Naturkatastrophen stehen die Vereinigten Staaten am Rande des Zusammenbruchs. Im politischen Vakuum gehen Armut und Terror Hand in Hand. Wer Geld hat, flüchtet und verbarrikadiert sich in Gated-Communitys. Die Übrigen haben nur eine Chance zu überleben – Flucht in die Wildnis. So auch das junge Paar Cal und Frida. Nur mit dem Nötigsten brechen sie auf und finden am Rande eines Waldes in einer kleinen Hütte Unterschlupf. Als Frida bemerkt, dass sie schwanger ist, könnte das der schönste Moment ihres Lebens sein. Stattdessen hat sie panische Angst. Als sie und Cal von einer geheimen Kommune namens The Land erfahren, keimt Hoffnung auf. Doch die Bewohner von The Land haben ein dunkles Geheimnis, das nicht nur Frida und Cal betrifft, sondern vor allem ihr ungeborenes Kind. Wie weit darf man gehen, um den zu schützen, den man liebt? California führt in eine Zukunft, die viel näher ist, als uns lieb sein kann, und erschafft ein bedrückend erhellendes Panorama der Menschlichkeit unter extremen Bedingungen. „Eines der Bücher, das sie dieses Jahr lesen MÜSSEN.“ Huffington Post „In ihrem atemberaubenden Debütroman erschafft Edan Lepucki eine satte, sehr realistische und hochkomplexe Zukunftsvision, deren Dramatik sie meisterhaft ausschöpft.“ Jennifer Egan „Was Edan Lepuckis Roman so fantastisch macht ist, dass ihre Überlebenskünstler uns nicht nur ähneln, sie sind wir, in ihrer Besonderheit und in ihren Dilemmas.“ Michael Specktor

Ich habe sie getroffen, irgendwo am Rand einer riesigen Stadt. Sie nahm Drogen und wollte dennoch leben. Eines von vielen eindrucksvollen Schicksalen in diesem Buch. Dabei ist es kein Schicksalsbuch - es ist ein Stück Realität. Es sind einfache Betrachtungen, vielleicht eher zufällige Beobachtungen - ganz sicher unbequeme, nicht immer schöne, aber eben Realität. Es mag eine Reise durch die Gefühle, durch eine Art Ausweglosigkeit sein. Bleibt am Ende doch die Hoffnung, vielleicht auf das Leben? In jeder Hinsicht bleibt eine nüchterne Erkenntnis: Es ist wie es ist!

The two authors have drawn upon their phycological research to offer a definitive representation of benthic marine algae from the Californian coast. The floristic treatment in this first paperback edition should aid accurate and speedy identification of flora due to the improved keys, descriptions, illustrations and more detailed coverage of taxa, and should enhance the reader's knowledge of Californian macro-algae.

A close look at rocks and trees is often rewarded by the orange or yellow mosaic patterns of some of California's 1,000 species of lichens; yet few people know anything about their unusual compound nature (part alga, part fungus) and most lichens don't even have common English names. This convenient guide, the first ever on California lichens, describes the appearance, habitats, and ranges of over 350 species, 48 of which are illustrated in color, with many others shown in black and white. For weavers and fabric manufacturers, the brilliance of lichen colors provides unusual textile dyes. For scientists, the sensitivity of lichens to air pollution makes them useful biomonitors for environmental studies. For nature lovers they can be an unending source of fascination, and Lichens of California offers convenient identification keys, range maps, and chapters describing the structure, chemistry, and ecology of lichens.

This long-anticipated reference and sourcebook for California’s remarkable ecological abundance provides an integrated assessment of each major ecosystem type—its distribution, structure, function, and management. A comprehensive synthesis of our knowledge about this biologically diverse state, Ecosystems of California covers the state from oceans to mountaintops using multiple lenses: past and present, flora and fauna, aquatic and terrestrial, natural and managed. Each chapter evaluates natural processes for a specific ecosystem, describes drivers of change, and discusses how that ecosystem may be altered in the future. This book also explores the drivers of California’s ecological patterns and the history of the state’s various ecosystems, outlining how the challenges of climate change and invasive species and opportunities for regulation and stewardship could potentially affect the state’s ecosystems. The text explicitly incorporates both human impacts and conservation and restoration efforts and shows how ecosystems support human well-being. Edited by two esteemed ecosystem ecologists and with overviews by leading experts on each ecosystem, this definitive work will be indispensable for natural resource management and conservation professionals as well as for undergraduate or graduate students of California’s environment and curious naturalists.
