|Vernal Pools is the first book-length synthesis of the natural history, ecology, and conservation of the seasonally wet pools that occur throughout the formerly glaciated region of eastern North America -- essentially the Great Lakes Basin, New England, and adjacent areas of Canada and the United States. |
Vernal Pools is a well organized, substantive, readily accessible resource that will be greatly valued by hydrologists, biologists, naturalists, environmental educators, interpreters, resource managers, citizen scientists, and policy makers. The book presents detailed information about the ecology of vernal pools systems, and discusses important research, conservation, and policy needs for pools to be better understood, protected, and managed. The lengthy bibliography will be an indispensable asset to any reader, beginner or advanced, interested in locating sources of information about vernal pools.
