An engaging, well-illustrated natural and cultural history of the oldest living organism: the bristlecone pine.Since Edmund Schulman discovered in 1958 that individual bristlecones live nearly 5,000 years, the trees have been investigated for the elaborate record their rings contain. They have been "read" closely, with major consequences for the records of natural and human history. Historians have read local and global environmental change. Archaeologists have rewritten the history of civilization. Writers have transformed the trees into figures pertinent to the human dilemmas of time and eternity. A Garden of Bristlecones investigates professional, popular, and artistic conceptions as a set of narratives drawn from the outside and from the inside of the trees. It reveals the premises of the investigators, the nature of their inquiry, and the extent of their knowledge, while also revealing the bristlecone pine itself. "This is a most impressive, groundbreaking work. Cohen's research is extensive and his perspective genuinely 'trandisciplinary.' ... The book is about people as much as it is about trees. It is about the way that culture influences our view of nature - the questions we pose to nature, the observations we make of nature, and the uses to which our observations are put. The bristlecone becomes a site where interests collide, where language is contested, and where reality and history are rewritten." - Cheryll Glotfelty, co-editor of The Ecocriticism Reader"In Cohen's ambitious endeavor, changes in the way bristlecone pine has been regarded during the last 150 years are a reflection of the changing view that Americans held of the West as it was explored, pioneered, exploited, and then protected. As scientists we have not only a responsibility, but perhaps even a moral obligation to convey the understandings that we glean from science to society as a whole. Yet it is Cohen who fulfills the role - the transfer of technology - that scientists seldom do." - Peter Wigand, Desert Research Insitute

Lake Bonneville: A Scientific Update showcases new information and interpretations about this important lake in the North American Great Basin, presenting a relatively complete summary of the evolving scientific ideas about the Pleistocene lake. A comprehensive book on Lake Bonneville has not been published since the masterpiece of G.K. Gilbert in 1890. Because of Gilbert’s work, Lake Bonneville has been the starting point for many studies of Quaternary paleolakes in many places throughout the world. Numerous journal articles, and a few books on specialized topics related to Lake Bonneville, have been published since the late 1800s, but here the editors compile the important data and perspectives of the early 21st century into a book that will be an essential reference for future generations. Scientific research on Lake Bonneville is vibrant today and will continue into the future. Makes the widespread and detailed literature on this well-known Pleistocene body of water accessible Gives expositions of the many famous and iconic landforms and deposits Contains over 300 illustrations, most in full color Contains chapters on many important topics, including stratigraphy, sedimentology, hydrology, geomorphology, geochronology, isostasy, geophysics, geochemistry, vegetation history, pollen, fishes, mammals, mountain glaciation, prehistoric humans, paleoclimate, remote sensing, and geoantiquities in the Bonneville basin
