This article talks about the natural and protected landscape and ecology of Yosemite National Park. It talks about how the ecology, specifically the California black oat, of the national park is no longer the same as what it was once. I will be including this point under my research for Yosemite's ecology.

The Yosemite

The Yosemite by: John Muir

Tiffany Xiong's insight:

This book talks about the many beauties of Yosemite National Park through John Muir's adventure through the park. It can be read and understood as somewhat of a guidebook to the park, but it also includes his intimate experience with nature there. The book also goes through the history and biology of Yosemite where the information found will be used within my research.
