Understanding and modeling how disturbances affect patterns and processes of ecosystems is a central topic of landscape ecology. Therefore, syntheses of current research about forest interactions with drivers of global change should be useful and appropriate for many ecologists. The Ecological Reviews book series developed from plenary presentations at the British Ecological Society Symposium. The presentations represent state-of-the-art reviews of cutting edge research likely to provide important progress to the field, particularly through methodological advances, and ideas for ecologists spanning a range of expertise, from postgraduate students to senior scientists. For this book, the eponymous meeting was held at the University of Cambridge in 2011. Along with an overview by the editors, the volume consists of 14 contributions from leading forest ecologists grouped into three sections: Forest dynamics and global change, species traits and responses to changing resource...
