A big list of 35 titles in various categories: Astronomy, Biography, Biology, Climatology, Environmental Science, Evolution, Geology, Health Sciences, History of Science, Mathematics, Natural History, Neurology, Oceanography, Paleontology, Physics, Psychology, Science, Technology, Zoology.
I've cobbled together this list from three lists from The Independent: Nature & Environment, Biography and History.
The Running Sky: A bird-watching life by Tim Dee
Say Goodbye to the Cuckoo by Michael McCarthy
Edible Seashore: river cottage handbook no. 5 by John Wright

Now that's bioephemera: my friend Rhett sent me a link to the work of Fulvio Bonavia, who created a series of eighteen photographs of food reimagined as haute couture. My favorite? The glassy-eyed sardine-link belt. See all eighteen images, and his other work, at his website.
