Central Hardwood Notes.

Central Hardwood Notes, by F. Bryan Clark and Jay G. Hutchinson. Superintendent of Documents, U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, DC 20402, Stock No. 001-001-00637-8. Softcover,$32.

This clearly written looseleaf notebook brings together a half-century of research results and management experience with central hardwoods. A valuable resource for landowners, professional foresters, and other interested persons, the notebook is a cooperative project by the U.S. Forest Service's Northeastern Area, State and Private Forestry, Northeastern Forest Experiment Station, North Central Forest Experiment Station, and Southern Forest Experiment Station.

It is conveniently organized into interest areas, which include regeneration, site quality, growth and yield, stand management, economics, wildlife habitat, and more. From the lake states to the northern fringe of Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia, and from the Shenandoah valley to eastern Kansas and Nebraska, the central hardwoods are a significant part of our forest heritage. These oak-hickory woods (with a few associated types) include about 100 million acres-one of the country's largest forest areas.
