KIRKUS REVIEW

As concisely and reliably as he previously introduced rivers and estuaries and in the same profusely photo-illustrated format, Pringle covers the different layers of a forest ecosystem -- canopy, understory, shrub, herb, and floor, the animals that live in each and their functions, the different kinds of forest climate, the process of plant succession, and changing attitudes toward fires and the use of national forests. Glossary, bibliography.
