Synopsis

Forest Ecosystems Analysis at Multiple Scales by Richard H. (Oregon State University, Corvallis, U.S.A.) Waring, Steven W. (University of Montana, Missoula, U.S.A.) Running

This revision maintains the position of Forest Ecosystems as the one source for the latest information on the advanced methods that have enhanced our understating of forest ecosystems. Further understanding is given to techniques to explore the changes in climatic cycles, the implications of wide-scale pollution, fire and other ecological disturbances that have a global effect. The inclusion of models, equations, graphs, and tabular examples provides readers with a full understanding of the methods and techniques.

Reviews

Praise for previous editions: Represents a tour de force of modeling, synthesis and integration. I doubt there is anyone else who would be able to pull all this together in a credible way. The authors have succeeded admirably in capturing the essence of landscape processes, their description and simulation. --Ron Neilson, USDA Forest Service and Oregon State University, Corvallis A nice synthesis and textbookfor forest ecosystems. The depth and breadth of their synthesis is admirable, and the work is well-balanced. The book will be a major contribution. --Michael G. Ryan, USDA Forest Service, Fort Collins There is a huge wealth of exciting information in this book. I loved the focus on models. This will be a great book and it will be widely used. --Kate Lajtha, Oregon State University, Corvallis The idea of putting this ecosystem textbook into a modeling framework is a very significant improvement over the 1985 book. Putting scaling as the over-arching theme makes this book most timely. --Hank Margolis, NASA Biospheric Sciences Branch
