Terricolous lichens, a habitat specialist group of lichens play a vital role in maintenance and ecological stability of soil crusts with reference to their physical stability, hydrology and growth of soil microflora. Terricolous Lichens in India, Volume 2: Morphotaxonomic Studies is the first lichenological study of this functional group. Based upon extensive field collections and the investigation of approximately 4,500 specimens preserved in various national and international herbariums, Terricolous Lichens in India: Volume 2: Morphotaxonomic Studies focuses on the morphotaxonomy of terricolous lichens in India. Divided into two chapters, the first chapter describes the basics of soil lichen curation from Indian habitats, presents the various morpho-anatomical and chemical techniques for taxonomic identification, and introduces the morpho-anatomical features of terricolous lichens. The second chapter focuses on the taxonomy of 312 terricolous lichen species and includes detailed identification keys and taxonomic descriptions. Written by experts in the field and complemented with over 50 color photoplates and maps, Terricolous Lichens in India: Volume 2: Morphotaxonomic Studies is a valuable resource for researchers and students interested in the field of lichenology.

Available in both an adult and a youth edition, Danger Calling features 16 true stories that take readers on a high-adrenaline ride--from the depths of the sea to the top of Mount Everest and everywhere in between--and pose provocative questions that move men and teen boys forward in their lives and faith. Danger Calling challenges readers to discover if they are truly living out God's game plan for their lives: Would you stop to help a climber in the "death zone" on Everest? What is your source of strength in a crisis? Could you lead others into battle knowing some are likely to die? To what challenge is God summoning you right now? Each story thrills and engages. Each set of questions challenges readers to discover who they are, where they stand in their faith, and whether God is calling them to a life of greater risks and deeper meaning. The youth edition contains a combination of eight stories of youth adventures, as well as eight from the adult version. Both books are perfect for small group use and include study questions with each chapter.

After living more than twenty years in the dreary Pacific Northwest climate, my friend Carol and I headed to the Caymans. This trip proved to be different than any other, as it marked the start of a new phase of my life underwater. With pristine water, beautiful fish, and intricate coral at my fingertips, I officially caught the scuba diving bug. As I reveled in the glorious undersea world and one dive turned into several hundred, I had no idea that my relatively calm life would soon be tossed upside down while on a trip to Kona, Hawaii. The excursion began so innocently. I spotted an unusual rock during a dive in Kona, stuck it in my pocket, and forgot about it until we returned home. Suddenly, strange events began to occur as I handled my “special rock” and shared it with others. Perplexed, I began researching the rock—not knowing that very soon, Carol and I would be running for our lives, pursued by higher-ups at a large pharmaceutical company who wanted what we had and were willing to do everything in their power to acquire it. This fast-paced, deep-sea adventure shares the story of an intriguing find from Hawaiian waters and how it changed my life forever.

To try seems impossible, but to lose is unthinkable... Hedi Peacock's to-do list is fraught with danger and unattainable goals. Luckily, this half-fae isn't fazed by the impossible - or prefers to ignore it. Hedi's found her way from our world to the fae lands, to save her brother's soul. But can she remove the sorcerer that's possessed Lexi's body? And saving her brother is meaningless unless she destroys the mage's spellbook, a volume so dark that it threatens human and fae realms. Hedi and her Alpha werewolf, Trowbridge, have a straightforward plan. However, planning has never quite worked for Hedi. Especially when Trowbridge risks meeting his feral former pack - now out for blood. Then, as Hedi nears her destination, she witnesses a scene of inexpressible grief. It forces her to re-evaluate loyalty and loss - but if Hedi changes her quest, can she still reach her dreams? Patricia Briggs has said 'If you pick up a Leigh Evans book, you won't put it down until the last page', so don't miss this fourth book in the Mystwalker series.
