About this book

This book gathers together noted scientists and historians to celebrate the varied and unique woodland region surrounding Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado, USA.

One of the most widespread habitat types in the West, pinon-juniper woodlands have faced extensive eradication, grazing pressures, and the encroachment of human developments, and, consequently, only a few mature stands have reached their full growth potential. Mesa Verde Country, with its deep canyons and high ridgetops, is the magnificent home of many of these ancient stands.

Impressively broad in scope, Floyd's volume thoroughly explores Mesa Verde Country's important and historic ecosystem.
