9780472070756: The Changing Environment of Northern Michigan: A Century of Science and Nature at the University of Michigan Biological Station

Northern Michigan is undergoing unprecedented changes in land use, climate, resource extraction, and species distributions. For the last hundred years, the University of Michigan Biological Station has monitored these environmental transformations. Stretching 10,000 acres along Burt and Douglas Lakes in the northern Lower Peninsula and 3,200 acres on Sugar Island near Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, the station has played host to nearly 10,000 students and a steady stream of top scientists in the fields of biology, ecology, geology, archeology, and climatology.

The Changing Environment of Northern Michigan collects essays by some of these scientists, who lead readers on virtual field trips exploring the history of people and science at the station itself, the relations of indigenous people to the land, the geophysical history of the region, characteristics of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, key groups of organisms and their relations to local habitats, and perspectives on critical environmental challenges of today and their effects on the region. Accompanying the chapters are color illustrations and photographs that bring the station's pristine setting to life.

Like the station itself, the book provides a solid background for better appreciating the relationships among living and nonliving parts of northern Michigan, for anyone interested in exploring the region's forests, fields, and wetlands; wading or paddling down its rivers; or swimming or floating across its lakes.

Knute J. Nadelhoffer is Director of the University of Michigan Biological Station and Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Michigan.

Alan J. Hogg, Jr., teaches science writing at the University of Michigan as a faculty member of the Sweetland Writing Center. His Ph.D. research explored the effects of ozone and nitrogen oxides on University of Michigan Biological Station forests.

Brian A. Hazlett is Professor Emeritus of Zoology at the University of Michigan.

Book Description The University of Michigan Press, United States, 2009. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. How has northern Michigan evolved over the last hundred years? The answers are found in The Changing Environment of Northern Michigan , a colorfully illustrated, scientifically based overview of the research done at the University of Michigan Biological Station over the last century. Nearly 10,000 students have taken classes at the University of Michigan Biological Station (UMBS), laid out as a small village on Douglas Lake near Cheboygan in the northern Lower Peninsula. The property covers 10,000 acres and hosts research on field biology and related environmental sciences. The UMBS has been keeping records for exactly 100 years on the plants and wildlife in the northern Lower Peninsula and eastern Upper Peninsula of Michigan, documenting changes as people gradually moved in and settled in those areas. This book tracks those changes but also shows how the area has changed since pre-European settlement, based on the station s research. The results are dramatic, underlaid with hard science, and described in a very readable manner. The Changing Environment of Northern Michigan is a must-read for anyone who is concerned about the environment and Michigan s wildlife, or who has had the good fortune to visit the UMBS.
