A Muslim Trapped In Donald Trump's America

RRP $16.99

On 9/11 he shaves his beard before the second plane hits, barricades the doors and waits for the authorities to come. At eighteen, he became a Muslim and was easy prey for fundamentalist sheikhs who frequent mosques with Saudi Arabian blood money in search for new Muslims to ensnare with tales and promises of jihad. He dodges a Saudi bullet and finds verses hidden in the context of the Qur'an that protect him from their advances, but as he retreats deeper in long-lost texts he is forced to wear a disguise in order to survive; finally revealing his true face in response to the campaign for Donald Trump for President.


Central American Biodiversity

RRP $546.99

This book highlights key results and lessons learnt from two field sites, La Suerte in Costa Rica and Ometepe Nicaragua. It provides long term data on species abundance and distribution. Primates receive specific attention in this book, as they are flagship species and good indicators for the "health" of an ecosystem, but as well a money maker. Many primate species are sensitive to habitat alteration, and are often hunted out first. But they play an important role as seed dispersal agents for the regeneration of the forest. The book then compares results from the two field sites with regional trends, and explores potential solutions such as REDD+. This book strongly calls for new approaches in conservation, it makes the case for looking beyond the pure species biology and classic conservation angle and to take into account the economic and political realities.
