A new book on the classic ongoing (50+ years) study of forest ecology. The research was ongoing and set the baseline for our understanding of the ecology forests on a watershed scale.
Often referenced, I'm looking forward to reading the history of the research.
Offered by Yale University Press, HUBBARD BROOK: The Story of a Forest Ecosystem provides an accessible review and synthesis of how researchers have used a living forest as an experimental laboratory. In the beautifully illustrated 270-page volume, Holmes and Likens showcase the role that long-term, collaborative ecological studies play in informing the protection of air and water resources, sustainable forestry practices, and wildlife conservation.
Holmes is a research professor of biology at Dartmouth College in Hanover, NH. He is also the Ronald and Deborah Harris Professor of Environmental Biology emeritus at Dartmouth. Likens is founder and president emeritus of the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies in Millbrook, NY. He is also Distinguished Research Professor at the University of Connecticut.
