Title: P.A. Thomas and J. Packham: Ecology of woodlands and forests: Description, dynamics, and diversity [book review]
Author: Royo, A.A.;
Source: Landscape Ecology. 23(6): 755-756.
Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)
Thomas and Packham’s Ecology of Woodlands and Forests is a welcome addition to the current selection of general forest ecology texts. This wide-ranging book provides an account of forest structure worldwide, surveys the evolution of forest communities, discusses important ecological relationships among forest organisms, and describes a range of positive and negative human impacts on forests. The authors accomplish this daunting task by providing examples throughout the narrative of variations in life-history strategies and ecosystem properties, and compare these features across ecosystems and throughout geologic time. This approach serves the book well, particularly in its aim to be an introductory text.
