About this book

Silvology is the general science of forest ecosystems, without the usual division between Man and Nature. This book aims to integrate and harmonize existing approaches. Topics covered include: Introduction of the methods; sections on forest organisms; a special chapter on trees; eco-units, ie forest ecosystems developing after some zero-event like fire, storm or waterlogging; silvatic mosaics built by the eco-units of different size, architecture and species composition; a summary of silvological rule determining systems behaviour at every level, eg fragmentation and fusion, transfer of functions, irreversibility and process oscillation.
