Excerpted from preface: 'The information presented in this book is the result of combined research efforts of scientists at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks, the Institute of Northern Forestry, USDA Forest Service, and the Systems Ecology Research Group, San Diego State University. The objective of the volume is to present a synthetic overview of structure and function of taiga forest ecosystems in interior Alaska. ... The organization of the book, divided into three sections dealing with the nature of the taiga environment and environmental controls over organism activity and ecosystem processes, reflects the overall thrust of our research up to this point.'
