Forest Ecology

James P. Kimmins

For undergraduate courses in Forest Ecology, Urban Forestry, and Forestry Management. This comprehensive textbook on ecosystem ecology is the only one on the market that covers the entire field, linking conventional ecosystem-level forest ecology to forest management. It features ecological site classification, ecosystem modeling, and strong sections on ecological diversity and the physical environment. The text presents a historical perspective, including human population growth, and puts the link between today's forest management and ecology into a philosophical framework.
