The dying of the trees : the pandemic in America's forests by Charles E Little( Book )

7 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 1,594 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Most of us remember the magic of a certain forest, or a favorite tree. Our children, says writer and conservationist Charles E. Little, probably won't. The forests are declining. The trees are dying. Little shows how logging in the Northwest is far from the whole story, how virtually everywhere in this country our trees are mortally afflicted - even before they are cut. From the "sugarbush" of Vermont and the dogwoods of Maryland's Catoctin mountains to the forests of the "hollows" in Applachia, the oaks and aspens of northern Michigan, and the mountainsides and deserts of the West, a whole range of human-caused maladies - from fatal ozone, ultraviolet rays, and acid rain to the disastrous aftermath of clear-cutting - has brought tree death and forest decline in its wake." "In his journeys to America's forests and woodlands, Little exhaustively explores this phenomenon with scientists, government officials, and citizen leaders and recounts how they have responded (and in many cases failed to respond) to this threat to global ecological balance."--Jacket

The encyclopedia of environmental studies by William Ashworth( Book )

6 editions published between 2001 and 2008 in English and held by 802 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Given the extraordinary amount of attention paid to issues involving the environment, students, researchers, and others interested in environmental science need a comprehensive source of accurate and clearly written information to address the issues that will affect the future of the planet." "Encyclopedia of Environmental Studies, New Edition is an expanded, up-to-date edition of the acclaimed encyclopedia and now features more than 4,000 A-to-Z entries - 1,000 more than previously - that reflect the diverse disciplines within the field of environmental studies. Influenced by current syllabi from university programs across the country, this edition's new and/or revised entries reflect the shift in emphasis from the scientific approach of 1980s environmental studies to the more issue-based approach that includes the social sciences and humanities. The authors, noted environmental writers and activists, include helpful information on key environmental issues, organizations, and personalities having an impact on the environmental movement."--Jacket

An Appalachian tragedy : air pollution and tree death in the highland forest of eastern North America( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 566 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Weakened by decades of air pollution that have brought acid rain, deadly smog, and excess nitrogen, and by cell-destroying ultraviolet rays from a thinning ozone layer, the magnificent Appalachian forests are no longer able to fight off the bugs, blights, and bad weather that afflict forests everywhere. Instead, in these mountains, the trees are dying in unprecedented numbers - with death and decline affecting virtually all species in every part of the range. Yet relatively few people are aware of this ecological calamity in the making, due in large part to the efforts of the forest products industry, and their advocates in government, to downplay the crisis by manipulating statistics and confusing the issue. An Appalachian Tragedy sets the record straight. Drawing on the talents of an authoritative and distinguished group of writers, including an award-winning historian, a top acid-rain scientist, and an eminent environmental journalist, this book documents the damage that has already been done and warns of the fearful consequences for the future. Complex issues connected with tree mortality in the mountains, including threats to wildlife and to the cultural survival of the human communities of the Appalachians, are eloquently explored here
