9781494485290: The Ecology of Common Woody Plants of Cape Cod

Ecological characteristics of woody plants (i.e. trees, shrubs, and vines) that are common on Cape Cod make up the central theme of this book. After a brief introductory chapter concerning Cape Cod as a setting for plant growth in unmanaged environments, fifty-three plants are discussed. The reader will find a photograph and short description of each plant’s appearance, followed by a discussion of ecological features that play a role in the plant’s ability to establish, grow, and reproduce in particular environments. As a rule, ecological information includes habitat affinities, successional status, shade tolerance, sexual and asexual reproductive characteristics, seed dispersal and germination, rooting features, adaptations allowing survival during and after fire, and wildlife utilization. An “Information Sources” section, usually consisting of two or more references that are generally available on the web, is included for each plant so that the reader may easily pursue further information. How plants are able to contend with and flourish in particular habitats is an extraordinary topic. Perhaps this book will increase the reader’s understanding and enjoyment of the natural world that supports our existence.

About the Author:

Gary Sanford spent his youth on a ranch near Sebastopol, California where agricultural products included eggs, apples, and cherries. After obtaining a Ph.D. in botany from the University of California, Davis campus, he moved to Massachusetts in the early 1970's, and has spent the last 40 years in New England. Most of this time was spent working as an environmental consultant and botanist dealing primarily with wetlands. The past few years have been spent on Cape Cod visiting various locations with his wife, Ann Marie Griffin Sanford. Their collaboration, he as author and she as photographer, led to the production of "The Ecology of Common Woody Plants of Cape Cod." Currently, they are collaborating on a second book dealing with the ecology of common trees growing in New England. Their house in Machias, Maine, makes an ideal base for working on the ecology of spruce fir forests.
