About the Author:

Elliot A. Norse is a marine and forest conservation biologist. His Ph.D. and postdoctoral research in the 1970s examined the ecology of blue crabs in Jamaica, Curacao, Mexico, Panama, and Columbia. Since then, he has devoted his career to incorporating conservation biology into environmental decision making as a staff member or consultant for US federal agencies, international governmental organizations, scientific professional societies, conservation organizations, and foundations. His writings include more than 50 publications on environmental policy, conservation biology, marine ecology, forest ecology, and human-caused climatic change.

From School Library Journal:

YA-- South America is not the only contintent destroying its forests, as this book accurately points out. Beginning with a brief examination of virgin forests as a global issue, Norse then focuses on the last remaining U. S. ancient forests. He examines in depth the complexity of the forest biome from the largest, oldest Douglas fir to the tiniest microbe, including man's impact on this irreplacable resource. With balance and objectivity, he explains the effects of the timber industry on the ecosystem and urges that we study carefully the interdependency of all life affected by the forest, not with the intention of eliminating the logging interests, but of preserving and restoring the forest so that all its uses may be perpetuated. Students will find a wealth of factual information here. The only drawback is that the book is most effective if read cover to cover, so for researchers who are dabbling, it won't be as useful.
