520    In his meticulous notes on the natural history of Concord,
       Massachusetts, Henry David Thoreau records the first open 
       flowers of highbush blueberry on May 11, 1853. If he were 
       to look for the first blueberry flowers in Concord today, 
       mid-May would be too late. In the 160 years since 
       Thoreau's writings, warming temperatures have pushed 
       blueberry flowering three weeks earlier, and in 2012, 
       following a winter and spring of record-breaking warmth, 
       blueberries began flowering on April 1st, six weeks 
       earlier than in Thoreau's time. The climate around 
       Thoreau's beloved Walden Pond is changing, with visible 
       ecological consequences. In this book the author uses 
       Thoreau and Walden, icons of the conservation movement, to
       track the effects of a warming climate on Concord's plants
       and animals. Under the attentive eyes of the author, the 
       notes that Thoreau made years ago are transformed from 
       charming observations into scientific data sets. The 
       author finds that many wildflower species that Thoreau 
       observed, including familiar groups such as irises, asters,
       and lilies, have declined in abundance or have disappeared
       from Concord. He also describes how warming temperatures 
       have altered other aspects of Thoreau's Concord, from the 
       dates when ice departs from Walden Pond in late winter, to
       the arrival of birds in the spring, to the populations of 
       fish, salamanders, and butterflies that live in the 
       woodlands, river meadows, and ponds. He demonstrates that 
       climate change is already here, and it is affecting not 
       just Walden Pond but many other places in Concord and the 
       surrounding region. Although we need to continue 
       pressuring our political leaders to take action, the 
       author urges us each to heed the advice Thoreau offers in 
       Walden: to "live simply and wisely." In the process, we 
       can each minimize our own contributions to our warming
