Uses a mechanistic perspective to describe how forests grow and respond to intentional manipulations and natural disturbances. Synthesizes the latest information from physiology, ecology and silviculture and compares patterns in different regions. Emphasizes the constant change of all forests and shows that similar development patterns are occurring in forests in North American and beyond.

Forest stand dynamics, the interactions of groups of trees and how they develop over time, is a quantitative approach to silviculture (forestry) that has replaced the older, classical methods of study. This book examines the influences of ecology, physiology, morphology and the environment, and proposes management applications.
