|Description:||In a nutshell, this book covers the natural and settlement history of the forests in the deciduous-to-boreal forest transition zone of the Lake States (Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan) of eastern North America, the diﬀerent types of disturbances that occur there, and how to study dis- turbances at the stand and landscape scales. Then several case studies from the Great Lakes Region are used to develop important concepts about the dynamic interactions between disturbance and forest size structure and composition. The dynamics of diﬀerent forest types within this region are compared with each other. Finally, principles on forest response to disturbance are developed that may be generalized to tem- perate forests around the world. These include the dynamics of conifer–hardwood mosaics, sensitivity of stands and landscape to chang- ing disturbance regimes, and stability at diﬀerent scales.|
