9780851992563: The Ecological History of European Forests (Cab International Publication)

Forest is the natural vegetation of most of Europe. Although the majority has been destroyed by human activity over the centuries, a considerable amount remains and has been managed to varying degrees and for a wide variety of reasons. This has resulted in a large number of natural and semi-natural landscapes and habitat types over the region and a high diversity of plant and animal communities adapted to them. The growing interest in natural history and the environment in recent years has resulted in a greater demand for information on the complex ecological history of European forest.

This book is unique in providing wide ranging and detailed case studies on specific aspects, including grazing, management practices and conservation and overviews, from recognized authorities, of the latest research on the ecological history of forests and woodland in Europe. It consists of selected papers given at an international conference of forest historians organized in association with the British Ecological Society and the International Union of Forest Research Organizations at Nottingham University in September 1996. Contributions come from the UK, Ireland, Scandinavia, the Low Countries, Germany, France, Spain, Italy and Turkey. This book is essential reading for ecologists, conservationists, landscape historians, foresters and geographers. It will also be of interest to advanced students in these areas.

Review:

"The range of method, geography, and land use covered is broad, and provides a nice introduction to historical ecology. Two countries (United Kingdom and The Netherlands) are covered in depth. Kirby et al. provide an informative and interesting overview of the Ancient Woodland Inventory in England and the application of such records to conservation. Meanwhile, Bailey et al. give a thoughtful treatment of opportunities for preserving biodiversity in ancient woodlands. Detailed studies are provided on historical controls over invertebrate fauna in pasture-woodlands (Alexander), woodland management on a 17th century estate in Yorkshire (Gulliver), historical changes in a Cumbrian woodland (Barker), and millennial changes in an Oxfordshire forest and implications for lepidoptera. Of particular interest are the Dutch contributions; they destroy the myth of homogeneity in The Netherlands ... [A] collection of intriguing stories of cultural landscapes ..."--The Quarterly Review of Biology
