DescriptionA symposium entitled "Bottomland hardwoods of the Mississippi Alluvial Valley: characteristics and management of natural function, structure, and composition" convened on October 28, 1995, as part of the Natural Areas Conference, October 25-28, 1995, In Fayetteville, AR. The symposium's goal was to provide informatibn that managers need to begin restoring the composition, structure, and function of off rest ecosystems in the Mississippi Alluvial Valley.Included in the proceedings from that symposium are 8 of 13 presentations. These peer-reviewed contributions address historical conditions of forests in the Mississippi Alluvial Valley (two papers), historical changes that are reflected in today's forests (one paper), the effect of historic and prehistoric rainfall patterns (one paper), forest fauna in the region (two papers), the effect of herbivory on forest vegetation (one paper), and management of bottomland hardwood forests for multiple outputs (one paper). A ninth paper, concerning characteristics of old-growth forests, is a posthumous submission authored by Dr. James T. Tanner; and the tenth paper was published in another venue. The intended audience of these proceedings includes managers of private, State, and Federal lands, as well as land management planners from a range of jurisdictions.
