An updated version of this popular reference."A readable introduction to ecology and wildlife conservation in the eastern deciduous forest." The Prairie Naturalist"Eastern Deciduous Forest is accessibly written for a broad audience. . . . The breadth of material covered is extraordinary for such a short book." Scott K. Robinson, Illinois Natural History SurveyFrom the East Coast to the Mississippi River, from southern Canada to northern Florida, the eastern deciduous forest of North America is home to a wonderfully diverse range of wildlife and ecosystems. Richard H. Yahner integrates basic biological principles into an account of the ecological consequences of society’s actions. As Yahner traces the history of conservation of the forest, he discusses relevant issues such as the loss of biodiversity, acid deposition, ozone depletion, and global climatic change. This new edition includes the most up-to-date information on the forest and its wildlife, with special attention given to contemporary conservation issues. The result is a timely and useful tool for anyone who wants to know or hopes to help one of North America’s great natural resources.
