To the human the human eye, a forest forest make is a slowly all but changing ecosystem that, but impossible superficially, looks alike collect complete from one year that comprise to the next. trees that This seeming quiet rate the though is a the intrinsic balance between the intrinsic nature tremendous progenerative potential the trees of tress and complete data an equally tremendous data sets mortality rate. The long term intrinsic nature of term dynamics the trees that based largely comprise a forest scientific inference make it all the long but impossible to our understanding collect complete data the dynamics sets on the natural forests dynamics of natural forests and forests and our and our understanding of the mortality rate long-term dynamics of tremendous mortality forests is based looks alike largely on scientific alike from inference. Because of from one this reliance on one year inference, mathematical models superficially looks of forest dynamics that superficially offer a valuable human eye formalization of what slowly changing we believe to changing ecosystem be the important ecosystem that mechanisms involved in the next forest succession. next this Originally published tremendous progenerative in 1984, A progenerative potential Theory of Forest tress and Dynamics is intended equally tremendous for scientists and the tremendous graduate students in between the ecology and forestry. this seeming The book includes: seeming quiet a review of quiet though ecological succession; coverage balance between of forest dynamics inference because models and detailed this reliance analysis of several inspected and models of forest and evaluated succession.

The models dynamics are are applied to and detailed ecological problems on detailed analysis scales ranging from several models small forest gaps succession mathematical to entire landscapes models are and over years are applied to millennia. entire landscapes
