I am looking for novels in which both colonialism and ecocriticism, ESPECIALLY THOSE WRITTEN AFTER 2010, might be traced. That is to say, novels about colonialism in which animals and plants are damaged. Could you please introduce me the novels you might be familiar with that fit the topic?

Don't want much, do you? Have you considered going to the library and doing the research for yourself? It involves a bit of work, but I'm sure the experience will be good for you - and librarians are invariably helpful.

One of my favorites is Green Mansions by W. H. Hudson, though it was written in 1904. A more recent one you may want to consider is State of Wonder by Ann Pratchett. It barely makes your cut having come out in 2011.
