"Forests in Time represents the cutting edge of efforts to create a truly historical approach to ecological science, and should be read by anyone who cares about the past, present, and future of terrestrial ecosystems."

- William Cronon, Author of Changes in the Land and Nature's Metropolis

"Forests in Time: The Environmental Consequences of 1000 Years of Change in New England", David R. Foster and John D. Aber, eds. 2004, Yale University Press, offers a unique look at combining history and science in ecological studies and environmental management and applies this approach to one of the most remarkably transformed landscapes in North America: the New England countryside. Written in accessible prose and profusely illustrated with photographs, maps, and graphs, the book relates the history of changes in New England and then explores the results of integrated studies and experiments in this largely forested landscape.
