Editorial Reviews

Aus den Rezensionen:". Die von Pinus palustris beherrschte Waldfläche . gilt heute als eine Existenz bedrohte Baumart in Nordamerika. Das erklärt das neu erwachte Interesse an dieser Art, der mit dem vorliegenden Werk eine umfassende Studie gewidmet ist. Sie umfasst vier Hauptabschnitte: Einführung mit Geschichte und Gegenwart der Ökosysteme, Ökologie, Waldbau und Wiederherstellung von Pinus palustris geprägter Waldtypen. Das Werk kann als vorbildlich für eine moderne forstliche Monographie gelten und wird daher sicherlich auch über Nordamerika hinaus Interesse finden."(Ernst Röhrig, in: Forstarchiv, 2006, Vol. 77, Issue 6, S. 225)
