In Forests in Time: The Environmental Consequences of 1,000 Years of Change in New England, co-editor John Aber ’73, Ph.D. ’76 relates the history of natural and human-induced changes that have occurred in the past 1,000 years in New England and explores the modern ecology of this largely forested landscape.
