Based on research at Harvard Forest, this book describes the natural and human-induced changes in the land and environment of New England over the past one thousand years.
David R. Foster is director of the Harvard Forest at Harvard University and principal investigator of its Long Term Ecological Research programme, one of twenty-five national centres for ecological research funded by the National Science Foundation. John D. Aber is a professor in the Institute for the Study of Earth, Oceans and Space and the Department of Natural Resources at the University of New Hampshire. A principal investigator for the Harvard Forest and Hubbard Brook Long Term Ecological Research sites, he is coauthor of Terrestrial Ecosystems.
David Foster and John Aber have produced a marvellous overview of ecological change in New England. Forests in Time represents the cutting edge of efforts to create a truly historical approach to ecological science and should be read by anyone who cares about the past, present, and future of terrestrial ecosystems. William Cronon, author of Nature's Metropolis and Changes in the Land; "This volume provides a wonderful synthesis of how the New England landscape has responded to one thousand years of ecological change. It delivers compelling evidence of why historical studies are so relevant to our understanding of challenges as diverse as invasive exotic pests and pathogens, nitrogen dynamics, and climate change." Norman Christensen, Duke University"
