McDonald & Woodward Publishing Company is pleased to announce the October 2004 release of the book Vernal Pools: Natural History and Conservation by Elizabeth A. Colburn.

The pools of the formerly glaciated regions of eastern North America are emphasized, but the information on pool history, content, and ecology--and conservation issues relevant to vernal pools--is applicable to pools in any geographic region.

To celebrate the publication of this first book-length synthesis of the natural history, ecology, and conservation of vernal pools, we are offering the book at a discount through December 31, 2004.
