About this book

As the lands began to emerge from under the ice, they provided a large, varied setting for the re-establishment of highly diverse plant cover ranging from the modern tropical rain forests to the arctic tundra. Ritchie discusses the roles of climactic change, wildfires, diseases, and biological factors in controlling the emerging patterns of new plant growth.

Media reviews
...Ritchie presents a remarkable synthesis of a quarter-century of research...The book is packed with information as well as interpretations; I can hardly do it justice...I enthusiastically recommend this book, to anyone interested in past vegetation, or in interpreting present vegetational patterns and changes. Bulletin of the Torrey Botanical Club "...an excellent and concise summary of the postglacial vegetational history of Canada and adjacent areas." Ecology "..an important reference. The author's perspective and style help to make the text interesting and readable. This contribution should have broad appeal to Quaternary scientists and to natural historians in general." American Scientist
