  • Florula Bostoniensis: A Botanical Time Capsule — New England Wild Flower Society
    us This is a story not only of the botany of native plants but of a place and of a people our region and people of New England Specifically this story covers the areas and towns around Boston where our book owner lived worked and rambled fields and woods to gather interesting plants Flash forward to summer 2015 As a volunteer librarian working with special collections at the New England Wild Flower Society I started to investigate the rare book collection held at the Society s Lawrence Newcomb Library at Garden in the Woods in Framingham Almost immediately I discovered the three volumes of Florula Bostoniensis held in our collection Something extraordinary happened as I opened up one of the books I was amazed to see not only the text of the 1824 second edition guide to native plants but was even more impressed by the story revealed in the marginalia These handwritten notes in the margins tell not only the extent to which this book was used as a field guide but how this volume captured its owner s love of the natural world My training at the Rare Book School at the University of Virginia heavily impressed on me the importance of maintaining physical books not only for their qualities as artifacts but for the information captured in personalized volumes Books become unique because of their owners In the case of Florula Bostoniensis a clean digital copy can easily be found online in the Internet Archive The Society s physical copy however contains the dates and places where the owner came across plants and identified specimens Andrew Leach Russell personalized the volume even more He inscribed poetic quotes taken from a variety of botanical writings of the day and pressed flowers and plants between the pages So not

  • Pope Francis urges us to “‘till and keep’ the garden of the world” — New England Wild Flower Society
    of resources across the world should read the document The Pope has added his voice to the chorus of religious leaders who have for quite some time been urging both the faithful and the powerful to fully commit to restoration and stewardship of the earth s resources Although characterized by the media as a document on climate change timed to influence a new round of global climate talks in Paris later this year the 246 paragraph encyclical is a wide ranging call to action to save the planet and the world s poor from the excesses of human consumption Pope Francis argues that the earth herself burdened and laid waste is among the most abandoned and maltreated of our poor and he repeatedly urges both personal and political action Throughout the text he reminds us all that stewardship of the earth is both a moral issue and one of self preservation as it is quoting Saint Francis of Assisi Mother Earth who sustains us and governs us and who produces various fruit with coloured flowers and herbs The first chapter of the encyclical opens with the common good of climate and the Pope s conviction that a very solid scientific consensus indicates that we are presently witnessing a disturbing warming of the climatic system In the four paragraphs on climate he asserts that climate change is a global problem with grave implications environmental social economic political and for the distribution of goods It represents one of the principal challenges facing humanity in our day He then calls on humanity to recognize the need for changes of lifestyle production and consumption in order to combat this warming or at least the human causes which produce or aggravate it And that last is the real point Whether he is addressing climate change

  • Poisoned Plants — New England Wild Flower Society
    pesticides can remain in soil for years and travel into water bodies so their toxic effects become more widespread According to research conducted by scientists at the U S Geological Survey and published in the journal Environmental Pollution in 2014 neonics were found in up to 75 percent of surface streams and waterways in an area of high corn and soybean production in the Midwest A study by Dutch scientists published in the esteemed journal Nature in 2014 links high concentrations of a common neonic in surface water to a decline in bird populations that averaged 3 5 percent annually A 2013 study published by the American Bird Conservancy indicates that a single corn kernel or tiny grain of wheat treated with some of the neonics can kill a songbird The advocacy group Friends of the Earth ramped up its campaign to get neonics out of nursery plants after discovering that 51 percent of the bee friendly plants it tested from garden centers across the U S and Canada contained neonics Gardeners are therefore creating pollinator gardens with plants that are killing the very insects they intend to support Other studies indicate that using neonics might be counterproductive for instance treating eastern hemlocks on your property with one of the most common neonics imidacloprid to control the invasive insect hemlock woolly adelgid can lead to secondary pest outbreaks of mites The warning issued last year by Dr Jean Marc Bonmatin a lead author of a study by the Task Force on Systemic Pesticides published in the journal Environmental Science and Pollution Research bears repeating The evidence is very clear We are witnessing a threat to the productivity of our natural and farmed environment equivalent to that posed by organophosphates or DDT Furthermore far from protecting food production the use of
