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.

I'd definitely checkout Mike Oehler's The Earth Sheltered Solar Greenhouse.
