Wetland, Woodland, Wildland: A Guide to the Natural Communities of Vermont
Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife and The Nature Conservancy, 2000 - Nature - 456 pages
Vermont's natural communities -- its northern hardwood forests, dry oak woodlands, alpine tundra, red maple swamps, bogs, and marshes -- are described in this comprehensive book. Richly illustrated with beautiful line drawings and color photographs, the guide describes each of Vermont's 80 upland and wetland natural communities. Ecological settings, including geology, soils, climate, and natural disturbance processes, are described for each community, along with complete lists of characteristic plants and animals, and public lands readers may visit.
Wetland, Woodland, Wildland contains detailed information on natural communities that is not available elsewhere, and practical information for naturalists, teachers, students, landowners, land managers, foresters, conservation planners, and all those with a love of the outdoors who want to learn more about their surroundings.
