Long-term research at the H.J. Andrews Experimental Forest, a renowned facility in the temperate rain forest of the Oregon Cascades. Scientists investigate the ecosystem's trees, wildlife, water and nutrients with an eye toward understanding change over varying timescales of up to two hundred years or more. Writers from both literary and scientific backgrounds spend time in the forest investigating the ecological and human complexities of this remarkable and deeply studied place. This is an anthology of essays, poems, and field notes that convey a landscape of moss-draped trees, patchwork clear-cuts, stream-swept gravel bars, and hillsides scoured by fire, and also bring forward the ambiguities and paradoxes of conflicting human values and their implications for the ecosystem.
