Book Description

May 20 2006

Spreading across the top of North America from Alaska to Newfoundland, and sweeping across the breadth of Russia to the fjords of western Scandinavia is the great northern forest.

An immense swatch of spruce, fir, larch, and aspen, it is arguably the largest forest ecosystem in the world. In Life in the Boreal Forest, noted science writer, naturalist and wildlife photographer Wayne Lynch examines the animals and plants of this mighty forest as the seasons unfold.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wayne Lynch's Life in the Boreal Forest Jan. 8 2012
By Traci Otte - Published on Amazon.com
Absolutely fantastic for a layman-enthusiast like me! This book is a highly readable collection of 3-6 page stories about groups of species in the Northern Forest. Each story tells the tale of how a small group of species interacts with one another and copes with the weather for survival in this huge and awesome wilderness.

I'm a dodo-brained poli sci major, a career military guy with no training in silviculture, zoology, climatology, or geology. I'm just an enthusiastic canoeist, hiker, fisherman, and admirer of the Canadian/Alaskan forests. The writer speaks to people like me perfectly- a really entertaining account of animals, weather, geology and forest interacting in an amazingly huge and 'unpeopled' wilderness.

For info, if you've got a kid at the high school level who needs to do a paper/report on species interacting in ecologies, this book has about 25 stories each with its own theme about the miraculous adaptations. I.E.- one of the best was about the ten year population cycles of rabbits, and how its predators and food react to these cycles.

Entertaining and educational. A great reminder that whether you believe in Creation or Evolution or some mix of the two, ecologies are amazingly complicated and genius!
