Product Description

Review

'It would be hard to overemphasise the importance of this book to temperate ecologists; no-one concerned with woodland, and few involved with other habitats, can afford to be without it.' Peter D. Moore, Biologist

'This is an excellent text coming from one of our leading woodland ecologists and deserves to be read by everyone with an interest in woodland ecology.' British Ecological Society TEG News

'This is a learned and witty book, a fit successor to Woodland Conservation and Management.' Oliver Rackham, Tree News

'Natural Woodland is a fascinating account of woodland natural history for all concerned with the management and ecology of natural and commercial woodlands.' Agroforestry News

'Within this book, Peterken has asked us all to 'think bigger', about the interactions going on within our woodlands … he will surely shake us too, into more enlightened thinking about woodland ecology.' Geral F. M. Dawe, Arboricultural Journal

'… excellent book … well illustrated with drawings and photographs, this is essential reading for all those interested in our woodlands.' Bryan Sage, Country-Side

'Peterken combines a high level of scientific detail with a readable and interesting style ... a pleasurable and fascinating book … essential reading for anyone concerned with the conservation of temperate woodland.' Paul M. Dolman, Journal of Applied Ecology

'Natural Woodland is written in a clear and approachable style. It has been beautifully produced by Cambridge University Press at a reasonable price … It will be invaluable to all foresters and there is simply no excuse not to buy it.' Quarterly Journal of Forestry

'… a stimulating book … Dr. Peterken is well known for his ability to spark off vigorous debate in person, and here he succeeds in doing it in print … a most valuable volume. It will be widely read and … is likely to prove a major influence on the management of British woodlands.' John R. Packham, Arboricultural Journal

'… throughout the book there is a wealth of detailed information in the text, numerous photographs, many diagrams and tables. The whole book is written in a style that makes it a pleasure to read.' David R. Causton, Annals of Botany

Book Description

George Peterken compares the ecology of both North American and European forests to produce a fascinating account of woodland natural history for all those concerned with woodland management and ecology. The underlying theme is that natural woodlands should form a basis for forest management, policies and practices.

I bought this book because I wanted to know some particular facts, and this looked like a good place to start. I found much of the information I needed and it isn't the author's fault that some of it wasn't there. He presumably didn't write this book in 1996 with my particular needs in mind in 2013.

I had thought that I would buy this book and sell it almost immediately but it still sits on by bookshelf. I ended up reading lots of it, enjoying it and learning lots about forests.

It's an academic book about forests - but if you have a brain and an interest in woodland you may find this interesting.

Good, but hard to read from cover to cover. It reads more like a textbook, which is fine, but I found it less engaging than Oliver Rackhams Woodlands book.

That said, it is a good reference book from a very knowledgeable author.

I will be writing on whether or not UK forestry is preparing for climate change in the choice of tree specieis to plant now for the future and this book is helping me in writing my thesis
