Description

Describes the Missouri Ozark Forest Ecosystem Projects (MOFEP) that was initiated in 1991 in southeastern Missouri. Describes in detail the coordinated research studies examining vegetation dynamics, down wood, fungi, birds, small mammals, herpetofauna, invertebrates, and genetics. Soils, geolandforms, ecological landtypes, and climate at the sites are described. Provides extensive baseline data on forest plant and animal communities. Pdf file includes a map, ~ 38x25", of MOFEP study sites.
