Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The flora of the eastern part of the US, at the Genus level, includes most of the same plant groups as those in Japan. The two regions are similar in latitude, natural environment, and vegetation, and have similar histories of rapid urbanization in recent times. This beautifully produced volume reports the results of an extensive survey based on phytosociology running from Toronto and Quebec to the Florida Keys, and compares the findings with previous similar surveys of Japan's vegetation. Accompanied by maps, charts, and photographs (8 pages--42 plates--in color), the findings presented here will serve as an ecological register. They provide a basis for understanding how changes in populated areas affect natural vegetation, with implications for land-use planning and other fields. Distributed by Columbia Univ. Press.
