I am looking for books on greenhouse design and tropical food forest design.  Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Even though I will never have a greenhouse, I adore Anna Edey's book Solviva.      http://www.solviva.com/

The Forest Garden Greenhouse
Book by Jerome Osentowski

The Year Round Solar Greenhouse
Book by Lindsay Schiller

both good reads about passive solar greenhouses, lots of overlap and each has a different name for the same earth to air heat exchange system.  both have good concepts and examples of passive solar greenhouses but don't expect any construction plans out of either.
