The February issue of Choice magazine named Climate Change and United States Forests, a book edited by U.S. Forest Service researchers, one of the Outstanding Academic Titles of the year.
Published by the American Library Association, Choice: Current Reviews for Academic Libraries is the premier source for reviews of academic books and digital resources of interest to scholars and students in higher education. Choice editors award Outstanding Academic Titles to books based on overall excellence in presentation and scholarship, importance relative to other literature in the field, distinction as a first treatment of a given subject in book or electronic form, and originality or uniqueness of treatment.
The Choice reviewer wrote: “This edited volume, which explores the impacts of climate change on US forests, consists of ten chapters, each written by a capable team of specialists. … The work synthesizes an impressive amount of research, and will serve well as a go-to resource, with extensive reference lists to direct interested readers back to the relevant primary literature.”
Edited by Forest Service scientists Jim Vose (Southern Research Station, Center for Integrated Forest Science), David Peterson (Pacific Northwest Research Station), and Toral Patel-Weynand (Washington Office), the book provides resource managers, researchers, and the interested public with a comprehensive science-based assessment of the effects of climate change and variability on U.S. forests.
