I wish to know my world better

Specifically the natural world around me. I recently moved back to California (southern, but interested in all) and have a growing desire to know and understand the 'natural' world around me. The flora and fauna (ID & cultural/commercial/ethnobotanical qualities), weather, and the changes to this aspect of the world, all interest me, especially in an environment so dynamic and exceptional, yet heavily culled and altered by human hand. Books, articles, websites, film, writers; any and all resources are welcome. Thank you. [more inside]

Nerdy field guides for California/Baja?

I am a biologist moving to San Diego. My work will take me all over the state, including SoCal deserts and Baja California. There are a million natural history books out there - which ones are worth the money? I want a good plant book for sure. But I would also love recommendations for geology, herps, birds, general natural history and anything else an outdoorsy gal might find interesting.
