About this book

This substantially revised and reorganized text provides an eminently current perspective on the material by emphasizing forest ecosystems using a landscape-ecosystem or geo-ecosystem approach. In this edition, organisms (e.g., forest trees, flora, fauna) are seen as notable parts of geographic or landscape ecosystems.
