Summary

The second edition of The Ecology and Silviculture of Oaks was recently authored by retireed NRS scientist Paul Johnson (Columbia, MO) and NRS scientist Stephen Shifley), with their colleague Robert Rogers (University of Wisconsin--Stevens Point, Emeritus). With 580 pages and more than 200 figures, the second edition includes much new material on artificial regeneration, effects of climate change, managing for biomass and carbon sequestration, oak decline, and sudden oak death as well as the material covered in the 10 chapters of the first edition. This book presents a holistic approach to oak ecology and silviculture across the more than 200 million acres of oak forests and mixtures in the United States. It is not a manual or how-to guide for oak silviculture, but rather a source of ideas on how to think about oak forests as responsive ecosystems.
