Having been widely adopted as the primary course material for bachelor’s and master’s degree classes in architecture and civil engineering in the universities all over the United States, the LEED Green Associate V4 Exam Complete Study Guide provides deep insight into the principles of green building; and helps the reader to learn, rather than to memorize the essential information for the exam.
Thus, this approach equips candidates to successfully pass the LEED Green Associate exam with flying colors in order to actively apply green building and LEED principles in real life. This book is the only resource a candidate needs, in order to successfully pass the exam.
As LEED v4 is quite different in comparison to the former versions, the book was entirely re-written; thus, it was not updated from a previous edition.

4. The World of the Salt Marsh: Appreciating and Protecting the Tidal Marshes of the Southeastern Atlantic Coast (Wormsloe Foundation Nature Book Ser.)
Author: by Charles Seabrook
Published at: University of Georgia Press; Illustrated edition (May 1, 2013)
The World of the Salt Marsh is a wide-ranging exploration of the southeastern coastits natural history, its people and their way of life, and the historic and ongoing threats to its ecological survival. Focusing on areas from Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, to Cape Canaveral, Florida, Charles Seabrook examines the ecological importance of the salt marsh, calling it a biological factory without equal.
Twice-daily tides carry in a supply of nutrients that nourish vast meadows of spartina (Spartina alterniflora)a crucial habitat for creatures ranging from tiny marine invertebrates to wading birds. The meadows provide vital nurseries for 80 percent of the seafood species, including oysters, crabs, shrimp, and a variety of finfish, and they are invaluable for storm protection, erosion prevention, and pollution filtration.
Seabrook is also concerned with the plight of the people who make their living from the coast’s bounty and who carry on its unique culture. Among them are Charlie Phillips, a fishmonger whose livelihood is threatened by development in McIntosh County, Georgia, and Vera Manigault of Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, a basket maker of Gullah-Geechee descent, who says that the sweetgrass needed to make her culturally significant wares is becoming scarcer.
