Coastally Restricted Forests addresses the ecology and management of freshwater forests and wetlands located along sea coasts, assessing the current research, comparing data from different geographic regions, and integrating applications and ideas from foresters, land-use managers, and water resource managers. This book fills a gap in forestry and wetlands literature, as it takes a worldwide view of natural resource management.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"As students and managers of marine habitats attempt to resolve the various interactions between coastal and shelf wetlands, it is obvious that the coastal forests will have to be given ever greater consideration if in fact these important ecological entities are to survive. Dr. Laderman's volume
will be extremely important in assessments and understanding how man has already affected the forests and coastal zone, and how our future efforts can save them as refuges and perhaps, to a degree, as economic entities. . . .I recommend the volume to anyone interested in coastal interactions."
--Marine Pollution Bulletin
"It has now been many years since I've taken other than a consultant's approach to the subject and the Coastal Forest book brought back how intellectually exciting the why and how forests grow where they do, can be."--Al Garlo, Senior Scientist, Normandeau Associates, Inc.
"Those interested in the ecology and biology of such forest ecosystems and their dominant species may find this book interesting and helpful."--Choice
"This volume treats the ecology, utilization, and management of freshwater forests within 250 km of the sea coast in the temperate and boreal Northern Hemisphere. . . . The book was derived, in part, from two symposia held in 1990 and 1991; however the 21 articles by 40 authors have recent
literature references and are not outdated by publication in 1997. . . . Most chapters of the book are addressed primarily to forest and preserve managers. However, the several chapters that deal with plant biology and descriptive ecology are also of value as reviews of the state of our knowledge .
. . and of interest to taxonomists and ecologists andare worthy of use as first readings for the professional and supplemental readings for students in plant ecology and plant geography courses. A few chapters could even serve as orientation material to be read before one visits some of the
interesting forests for class trips, plant collecting, or tourism."--Brittonia
