Record #119927:

The ecology of recently-glaciated terrain: a geoecological approach to glacier forelands and primary succession / John A. Matthews.

Title: The ecology of recently-glaciated terrain: a geoecological approach to glacier forelands and primary succession / John A. Matthews.
Author(s): Matthews, John A.
Date: 1992.
Publisher: Cambridge: Cambridge University Press
Abstract: Existence of terrain of increasing age from retreating glacier (chronosequence) enables inference of ecological changes over time scales of decades and centuries. Describes such changes, based on research in Jotunheimen, Norway, and discusses theories of plant succession and related concepts based on available data. Considers dating techniques; physical landscape (glacial and periglacial effects, climatic environment); soil development; and plant succession (patterns and environmental factors, processes and models. All reference at end of book, p. 327-367, forming useful bibliography.
