This book is one of a series of volumes reporting results of research by U.S. scientists participating in the International Biological program (IBP). As one of the fifty-eight nations taking part in the IBP during the period of July 1967 to June 1974, the United States organized a number of large, multidisciplinary studies pertinent to the central IBP theme of "the biological basis of productivity and human welfare." These multidisciplinary studies )Integrated Research Programs) directed toward an understanding of the structure and function of major ecological or human systems have been a distinctive feature of the U.S. participation in the IBP. Many of the detailed investigations that represent individual contributions to the overall objectives of each Integrated Research Program have been published to accomplish a synthesis of the many contributions for each principal program of the major systems that have been studied. --- from book's Foreword
