About this book

Twenty thousand years ago, deciduous tree species formed only minor parts of forests dominated by pines, spruces, and firs that were better adapted to the glacial climate. As the climate warmed, the deciduous forest emerged as the dominant vegetation throughout the southeastern quarter of North America.
Along this journey, the reader is introduced to methods of studying vegetation, collecting and interpreting data, and applying the insight of forest ecology.
