Eastern Deciduous Forest, Second Edition: Ecology and Wildlife Conservation by Richard H. Yahner



The book does well at showing the complexities of understanding and managing the Eastern Deciduous forest. Perhaps starting with a premise of the Forest as a resource by the end we are presented a more multi-species and balanced approach. The values are still human centered, such a s recreation so perhaps a broader presentation of intrinsic or ecosystem values would have been good. The section on biodiversity does seem to explore other value systems, is one species more valuable than another? The breadth of the book is its strong point.

The book does well at showing the complexities of understanding and managing the Eastern Deciduous forest. Perhaps starting with a premise of the “Forest as a resource” by the end we are presented a more multi-species and balanced approach. The values are still human centered, such a s “recreation” so perhaps a broader presentation of intrinsic or ecosystem values would have been good. The section on biodiversity does seem to explore other value systems, is one species more valuable than another?
The breadth of the book is its strong point. The chapter on “Early History of the Forest” describing the origins and maps of vegetation at 10,000 years ago were really relevant, particularly in later chapters of global climate change and migrating tree species (just 10 – 40 km per century!). Understanding soil, and solar radiation (as in facing slope) important. The forest plants and animal interaction well done .. and shows some of the impacts of single species management (“Annual timber loss to browsing deer in NW Pennsylvania estimated at $56 per hectare). The trade offs of management forest for mature versus early succession is well done.
This 2nd edition published in 2000 has some dated items. For example, Acid Rain, (sulfur dioxide pollution) has been greatly reduced partly from 1990 Clean Air Act. Additionally there are further exotics, such as Emerald Ash Borer and the Woolly Agelid mentioned for Hemlock has devastated many stands beyond Shenandoah.

The book arrived on 6/12/10 in "good condition" with clean pages, no writing, underlining, highlighting, or other marks, as advertised. They indicated "almost no shelf wear"; I did not observe any. The book was actually in like new, mint condition. Thank you very much.

This book is a must for anyone who is considering naural resource management as a career, as I am. It deals with the basic ecological terms and poses some very difficult problems that forest management will occure in the recent future. If you are interested in conservation, and not preservation, this book will be a wise investment.
