Description

The six articles in this issue of Advances in Ecological Research cover a wide spectrum of ecology to ecology to munities, the discussion of vegetation change on a longer time scale, and the significance of conservation, especially in the industrialized world. S.J. Hall and D.G. Raff provide something of interest to all ecologists. Several common themes are presented in this volume including the dynamics of communities with such examples as Glacier Bat and Mount St.Helens.
