In writing The Ecology and Silviculture of Oaks, Paul Johnson, Stephen Shifley, and Robert Rogers have performed a tremendous service to the forestry community, and the hardwood forestry community in particular. Although there have been several books on hardwoods and numerous symposia on oak ecology and management over the years, this volume provides a centralized, albeit expensive, explanation and reference to a significant body of information focusing on the various species of oaks. What was most informative and valuable to me, however, was how this book also presented a template for understanding the ecology and management of all shade-intolerant to mid-tolerant species.
