From the reviews: "This book attempts to synthesize information from various fields about early successional habitats to help researchers and resource managers understand, sustain, and protect wildlife and plant species across these ecosystems. ... Chapters are thoroughly referenced with citation lists at the end of each. ... the book can serve as a useful practical management guide. Includes numerous black-and-white and color photographs, figures, and maps. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above." (D. L. Richter, Choice, Vol. 49 (6), February, 2012)
