Book Description | Table of Contents


"It is difficult to imagine a more thorough and comprehensive work within a single cover. . . . It is an object lesson in how a high quality comprehensive monograph can be produced. Starting with acid-free paper, the publishers have done justice to the excellently drawn diagrams, crisp SEM pictures and superb color photographs which illustrate the text. The photographs themselves are not just technically superior, relevant and informative, they are works of art in their own right, composed with obvious skill and care. This must have been a labor of love. In short, this is clearly a standard reference work with the rare quality to inspire as well as to inform. The three authors have collectively devoted over 60 years to this work and they should feel very satisfied with the result."--Bulletin of the British Ecological Society
