About this book

A synthesis of 20 years of research on the structure, function, and dynamics of holm oak forests in two intensively studied experimental areas in Spain. By combining observational measurements at the leaf, tree, plot, and catchment scales with field experiments and modelling, the authors explore how these forests cope with strong water limitation and repeated disturbances.


The volume comprises 25 chapters and is divided into the following 7 parts: Introduction * Stand Structure and Dynamics * Light Harvesting and Gas Exchange * Nutrient Cycling at the Stand Level * Hydrology and Biogeochemistry of Catchments * Responses to Disturbances * Animals in the Forest: Ecology of Two Main GroupsThe complete Table of Contents can be found on the internet.
