 About the Book 

With the demise of the American chestnut, oaks are more vital than ever in the delicate web of relationships that sustains North American wildlife. They form the foundation of many North American ecosystems. Acorns are an important part of the diets of more than 100 species of birds and mammals. Until now, most oak ecosystem research has focused on a variety of disparate factors and approaches. This book aims to provide a foundation for managing oak forests as whole, complex ecosystems.
