9780199837656: The Herbaceous Layer in Forests of Eastern North America

Over the last decade, the field of plant ecology has significantly developed and expanded, especially in research concerning the herbaceous layer and ground vegetation of forests. This revised second edition of The Herbaceous Layer in Forests of Eastern North America accounts for that growth, presenting research that approaches the ecology of the herb layer of forests from a variety of disciplines, perspectives, and levels of ecological organization. The book synthesizes the research of top ecologists on herbaceous layer structure, composition, and dynamics of a variety of forest ecosystem types in eastern North America.

The 2003 first edition of The Herbaceous Layer in Forests of Eastern North America was praised for containing the most extensive listing of herb-layer literature in existence. This second edition brings this material up to date, revised to include current research, data, and concepts. The book incorporates quantitative data to support analyses that were previously unavailable during the publication of the first edition. Also featured are eight entirely new chapters, with six of these focused on the response of the herbaceous layer to a wide variety of natural and anthropogenic disturbances. Building on the over 1,200 references and sources of the first edition, the second edition of The Herbaceous Layer in Forests of Eastern North America, with well over 2,500 references, is an invaluable resource for plant ecologists, forest ecologists, conservationists, and forest managers.

About the Author:


Frank S. Gilliam received his Ph.D. at Duke University in 1983, moving on to post-doctoral research at Kansas State University and the University of Virginia, and teaching at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. He joined the faculty at Marshall University in 1990, where he is professor of biological sciences, teaching courses in ecology and plant ecology. His research interests lie at the interface between terrestrial plant communities and ecosystems. He is the husband of Laura Pleasants Gilliam, and the grateful father of two children-Rachel MacKenzie Gilliam and Ian Stuart Gilliam.

Review:


"Overall, the second edition of The Herbaceous Layer is much more than a corrected and lightly updated version of the first edition. The new chapters bring into sharp focus the importance of disturbance, conservation, and protection of forests and forest understories in states ranging from recovering clear-cuts to old-growth stands. The literature reviews and integrated bibliography are incredibly thorough and provide a one-stop shop for students beginning studies of the forest understory, for experienced researchers in need of a refresher, and for all, a reminder of the importance, the value, and the aesthetic beauty of the herbaceous layer." --RHODORA
