Summary
Explores the Adirondack forests of New York state, discussing how the forest develops, the plants and animals found there, and ways in which the living and nonliving parts of the forest work together. Go on a journey that begins in towering, broadleaf treetops and ends tangled in roots deep below the ground. Using the Adirondacks as an example, Life in a Deciduous Forest examines the physical features, processes, and many different species of plants and animals that make up a unique deciduous forest ecosystem. Find out about the impact of humans on this once-pristine ecosystem, and what is being done to save it. Travel from light-filled branches to darkly shadowed forest paths and learn what makes this ecosystem special
