From the reviews:
"Springer's Ecological Studies series provides an invaluable database and synthesis in ecology that students and researchers alike should be aware of. The series provides very useful insights into ecosystems, providing background and up-to-date information on whole ecosystems and how they function in relation to their environment. This book is no exception. ... I would recommend this book to researchers and students alike, as the data are presented in a very accessible, clear fashion and the content can be extrapolated to many upland ecosystems in the United Kingdom." (Mountain Research and Development)
"The book is well structured and consists of 25 well-written concise chapters mostly by groups of authors ... all being specialists in the field. ... We have to congratulate all authors in particular the editor on this versatile, highly informative, well organized and concisely written book. ... This fascinating book is strongly recommended ... . It is a must for libraries of universities, high schools and other institutes and organisations of fundamental and applied research in bio- and geosciences ... ." (Fred J. A.
