Chapin, F. Stuart, Mark W. Oswood, Keith van Cleeve, Leslie A. Viereck AND DAVID L. VERBYLA (EDS.)

Alaska's Changing Boreal Forest. 2006. 65 line - drawings. XIV, 354 p. gr8vo. Hardcover.
This volume synthesizes current understanding of the ecology of Alaska's boreal forests and describes their unique features in the context of circumpolar and global patterns. It tells how fire and climate contributed to the biome's dynamics. As climate warms and permafrost (permanently frozen ground) thaws, the boreal forest may be on the cusp of a major change in state. The editors have gathered a remarkable set of contributors to discuss this swift environmental and biotic transformation. Their chapters cover the properties of the forest, the changes it is undergoing, and the challenges these alterations present to boreal forest managers.
