Brings together for the first time experts in anthropology, ecology, geology, paleontology, wildlife, and landscape modelling to review our understanding of the small, forested islands that are a feature of most large wetlands. Reviews the geologic origin of different kinds of tree islands and presents competing hypotheses about their subsequent development. Describes their vegetation and controlling factors, their fauna, their unique geochemistry, and their use by Native Americans. Emphasizes the importance of recurring wet and dry years for understanding changes in tree island flora and fauna.
