There are also papers on butterfly gardening in other areas of the State, and information about butterfly population biology, habitat management, etc. Many excellent resources are available free here! There are two local chapters in the San Francisco Bay region and they conduct several butterfly counts.

Spiders on the Web
Get photographs of Orange County spiders, most also native to the San Francisco Bay region.

The Fungi of California
Native trees – especially oaks and pines and Douglas firs – support beautiful and interesting fungi – and vice versa, it’s symbiosis!

Jeffrey, I really enjoy your blog, even though your on the opposite side of the country from me. I found so few wildlife and habitat blogs - I'm hoping the interest and conversation will grow over time.

I just came across a great gardening website called*. Not only does it feature articles for the gardening enthusiast, but has become a great gardening book
resource for me in my landscaping effort. The webmaster of this site has recently added a book section that seemed to expand everytime I go there.
What I like about it is that I get instant access to the book and don't have to wait for the book(s) to arrive which of course saves me shipping charges.... in some cases. Great idea. I love it. You must check it out today. Let me know what you think.

Do you want to grow your own House Plants, Flowers, Trees and Shrubs for FREE....Grow them to landscape your yard, grow them for fun and for profit....Growing small plants in your backyard is one of the most rewarding things you will ever do in your life. Not to mention the money you can make. Getting started in this home based business is really easy. All you have to do is start rooting cuttings of your favorite plants (I'll show you how to do that), and you are off and running. Any time you have a few extra minutes just stick a few cuttings. Before you know it you will have thousands of plants valued at several thousand dollars.
