Title: Sustaining Young Forest Communities

Publisher: Springer-Verlag Gmbh Aug 2011

Publication Date: 2011

Binding: Buch

Book Condition: Neu

Description:

Neuware - This edited volume addresses a rising concern among natural resource scientists and management professionals about decline of the many plant and animal species associated with early-successional habitats, especially within the Central Hardwood Region of the USA. These open habitats, with herbaceous, shrub, or young forest cover, are disappearing as abandoned farmland, pastures, and cleared forest patches return to forest. There are many questions about 'why, what, where, and how' to manage for early successional habitats. In this book, expert scientists and experienced land managers synthesize knowledge and original scientific work to address questions on such topics as wildlife, water, carbon sequestration, natural versus managed disturbance, future scenarios, and sustainable creation and management of early successional habitat in a landscape context. 310 pp. Englisch.

Review:

From the reviews:

?This book attempts to synthesize information from various fields about early successional habitats to help researchers and resource managers understand, sustain, and protect wildlife and plant species across these ecosystems. ? Chapters are thoroughly referenced with citation lists at the end of each. ? the book can serve as a useful practical management guide. Includes numerous black-and-white and color photographs, figures, and maps. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above.? (D. L. Richter, Choice, Vol. 49 (6), February, 2012)

?Sustaining Young Forest Communities is a good compilation of knowledge about an important forest ecosystem and belongs on the bookshelf of every natural resource practitioner tasked with managing this important resource. One of the principal benefits for anyone who reads this book is that it provides both a broad overview and a reference source for the various disciplines, particularly for those with which the reader is not familiar, allowing one to gain understanding of the opportunities and issues.? (W. Keith Moser, Journal of Forestry, June, 2012)
