Tom Fleischner, Faculty Emeritus and Executive Director of the Natural History Institute, edited the new anthology, Nature, Love, Medicine: Essays On Wildness and Wellness (Torrey House Press, 2017).  The book includes contributions from Prescott College alumni Melanie Bishop, Edie Dillon, and Gary Paul Nabhan, along with those from Thich Nhat Hanh, Jane Hirshfield, Robin Wall Kimmerer, Lauret Savoy, and many others.  Booklist’s review stated: "NATURE LOVE MEDICINE is a beautiful collaboration that brings together diverse perspectives.... While each offering is unique and each voice tells a specific story, a common passion and sense of beauty unites the book and transcends any expectations.... Each contributor's love for the natural world is apparent and, more important, infectious. Readers will be inspired to renew their connection to the living world and attempt to rejuvenate their bodies and minds."

Tom also published “Natural History – Here and Now” in Pan European Networks: Science and Technology, and, with David Hanna and Lisa Floyd-Hanna, “A preliminary description of the Mogollon Highlands Ecoregion” in The Plant Press (journal of the Arizona Native Plant Society).
