Book Description

Ferns are an integral part of the world's flora, appreciated for their beauty as ornamentals, problematic as invaders and endangered by human interference. They often dominate forest understories, but also colonize open areas, invade waterways, and survive nutrient-poor wastelands and eroded pastures. This is the first comprehensive summary of fern ecology, with worldwide examples from Siberia to Hawaii. Topics include a brief history of the ecological study of ferns, their biogeography and population dynamics, their role in ecosystem nutrient cycles and adaptations to xeric environments, and their responses to disturbance and interactions with other organisms. Fully illustrated concepts provide a framework for students and professionals in ecology, conservation, and land management, and a wealth of information for anyone interested in ferns.

Review

"The extensive end-of-chapter bibliographies and excellent glossary are commendable. Illustrated with black-and-white and some color photographs, this is a valuable scholarly contribution to the knowledge of ferns, an integral part of the world's flora."
L.G. Kavaljian, California State University, Sacramento, Choice Magazine

"This comprehensive treatment of fern ecology makes it clear that ferns can be the exemplars for any major concept in biology and that are temperate zone bias has led to many misconceptions about the more than 10,00 extant species of ferns and fern allies. Fern Ecology is an excellent introduction to this rapidly growing field. The comprehensive and detailed nature of the treatment might lead you to believe that this scholarly book should be used as a reference. However, the authors and editors have done an excellent job at making this an enjoyable and engaging read for anyone interested in ferns."
Marshall D. Sundberg, Emporia State University for Plant Science Bulletin
