This third revision maintains the position of Forest Ecosystems as the one source for the latest information on the advanced methods that have enhanced our understating of forest ecosystems. Further understanding is given to techniques to explore the changes in climatic cycles, the implications of wide-scale pollution, fire and other ecological disturbances that have a global effect. The inclusion of models, equations, graphs, and tabular examples provides readers with a full understanding of the methods and techniques.

About the second edition: This book has been updated with some forty percent additional coverage of regional and global scaling issues, with new chapters on ecosystem modelling, remote sensing and monitoring of atmospheric chemistry. It deals with the essence of landscape processes, their description and simulation, providing an admirable synthesis and textbook covering forest ecosystems. It covers new methods of analysis by introducing new techniques to explore changes in climatic cycles, the implications of wide-scale pollution, fire and other ecological disturbances that have a global effect on all life forms. The book is suited to those less familiar with the topic since it defines terms and explains concepts in a number of ways, providing models, equations, graphs and tabular examples.

Of interest to: researchers and individuals interested in ecology, forestry, plant and environmental sciences; advanced undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty in forestry and ecology programs
