Dr. Graham Powell's new work builds on his earlier publication, Lives of Conifers: A Comparative Account of the Coniferous Trees. As in the previous book, Dr. Powell provides his readers with a detailed view of the morphological and physiological features of the Canadian broadleaved species birch, maple, and ironwood. These species occur naturally in one or more of the four Atlantic Provinces, in Qu�bec, east of Qu�bec City in Canada, and in the states of Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont in the United States.
Powell's approach offers readers unique overviews of the complex and dynamic features of tree growth, reproduction and physical development. His text is profusely illustrated and researched and amply supported by full citations for all scholarly work quoted.
