Dear H-ENVIRONMENT Readers,

Boris Komarov, The geography of survival, Armonk, 1994,
I don't know if you are interested in literary texts at all, but Mikhail Prishvin's "Nature's Diary" was published in 1935, and Prishvin is considered to be (along with Tolstoy) one of the greatest Russian-language nature writers. Best of luck!! Masha Shpolberg (UNC-Wilmington)
