Regional Silviculture of the United States, 2nd Edition John W. Barrett This is the only regional silviculture text now on the market. It assesses the significant biological, physical, and economic qualities of forest regions in the continental U.S., and their effect on silviculture practices. The first chapter provides an overview of the forests of the U.S. and introduces the topic of social and institutional constraints on silviculture. Subsequent chapters each deal with a specific forest region, are written by a person intimately acquainted with the locality, and follow a regular outline to provide cohesion and facilitate regional comparisons. 1980 551 pp. Forest Ecology, 3rd Edition Stephen H. Spurr and Burton V. Barnes The growing interest and literature in this field created a need for a fresh updating of this classic text. It remains a comprehensive yet highly readable account of real world forests, including ecological aspects of successful forest management. Broad coverage embraces genetics and variation, environmental factors, site, community relations, ecosystem studies, glacial forest history, post-settlement history, compostition and succession. 1980 687 pp. Wildlife Biology, 2nd Edition Raymond F. Dasmann This updated and revised edition of the standard introductory text brings together the principles of ecology and population biology and the practice of wildlife conservation and management. It presents basic information on the value and present status of wild animal life, including a history of human relationships with and attitudes toward wildlife. Examines wildlife within the context of ecosystems, indicating why single-species approaches to conservation and management often fail. 1981 212 pp.

From the Publisher:

Presents a historical perspective on the role of fire in the major ecosystems of the United States and Southern Canada. Reveals impact of fire on plant species, particularly those of native plant communities with detailed discussion from an ecological point of view. Shows the potential role that fire may play in a managed ecosystem for both plants and animals. Examines principles and uses of prescribed fire to achieve management objectives. Special chapters on temperature and heat effects, soil and heat effects, soil and water properties, and wildlife are included. Contains numerous maps and before and after sequence photos.

From the Inside Flap:

"Skillful application of fire to meet resource management objectives requires definitive and quantified knowledge of the physical, biological, and ecological effects of fire on the specific ecosystem involved. In this book, Drs. Wright and Bailey wisely emphasize the impact of fire on plants and plant communities.... "The authors have provided us with a prodigious work collected from many sources, infused it with their considerable experience, and have presented us with a valuable guide to using fire over an extremely complex geographic area and for a wide variety of plant communities. It should prove valuable to fire researchers, wildland planners, and land and resource managers. I believe that Fire Ecology will be a standard reference for years to come." From the Foreword by James E. Lotan Forest and range managers today have an unparalleled opportunity to use fire as a resource management tool. The traditional policy of suppressing all forest and rangeland fires at any cost is rapidly giving way to a view that recognizes fire as an ecological force and a cost-effective tool for altering ecosystems to meet management goals. Fire Ecology: United States and Southern Canada embraces this changing philosophy. Bringing together previously scattered research, this much-needed work provides a state-of-the-art progress report on applied fire ecology in the United States and Southern Canada. It examines fire’s historical impact on most plant species and native plant communities, and treats in detail the principles of prescribed fire in ecosystem management—with practical recommendations for its use. Maps of each major vegetation type and numerous before-and-after sequence photos—some spanning periods of up to 100 years—clarify this historical perspective and reinforce the book’s insights into the potential role of prescribed fire in a managed ecosystem.
