Riassunto: For the first time ever, Victor M Cassidy brings to life the world of Henry Chandler Cowles, internationally renowned ecologist, botanist, university teacher and conservationist. The book also rescues and reprints the best of his writings from forgotten journals and contains previously unpublished family and expedition photographs. At the end of the 19th century, Cowles made hundreds of field observations of the sand dune landscape that rings the southern and eastern shores of Lake Michigan. His studies demonstrated that the outdoor environment is a dynamic system in which plants, soil, moisture, climate, and topography interact. Cowles was the first to make sense of plant succession, which denotes the way that communities of plants come into a landscape, flourish, and create conditions for their replacement by other plant communities. He later expanded his plant succession studies into different Chicago-area ecosystems. Starting from a blank sheet of paper, Cowles created the entire ecology curriculum at the University of Chicago and taught it for more than thirty years.
L'autore: Victor M. Cassidy is a professional writer and conservation volunteer based in Chicago, Illinois. He has published in conservation periodicals and, in 2004, edited Hunting for Frogs on Elston, a volume of nature journalism. Cassidy has edited trade journals, written art criticism, and has slowly discovered the vibrant environmental movement in the Chicago area. As his interest in this subject deepened, he took courses which included field ecology, plant identification, wetlands, and prairies, leading to a Naturalist Certificate from the Morton Arboretum in Lisle, Illinois. For about ten years, Cassidy has worked as a field volunteer in nature preserves near Chicago. Recently, he helped organize field seminars at restoration sites where advanced volunteers exchanged information about their work. He also helped to organize a daylong series of workshops for more than 700 conservation volunteers. Henry Chandler Cowles: Pioneer Ecologist is his first ecology book.
