A new quarterly journal from the Siskiyou Field Institute in Cave Junction, Ore., devotes itself to "trees, rocks, critters, creeks, humans, snakes" - the list goes on to include little-known but wonderfully named species like "chalcedon checkerspots" and "hooded ladies tresses."
All inhabit a landscape that ecologists call the Klamath-Siskiyou Ecoregion. It includes the Pacific Coast of southern Oregon and Northern California, and it extends east through four mountain ranges that feature a slew of magnificent pines. To spread the word about this special place, the institute this fall published its first 22-page Mountains & Rivers, A Quarterly Journal of Natural History for the Klamath-Siskiyou Region. It is unabashedly ambitious. Managing editor Evan Frost says his goal is to celebrate the region and explore what makes it different and vulnerable. He welcomes artwork, poetry, essays and reports.
