How to Read the Natural Landscape in Forests and Fields.
Davis, Millard C.
This booklet is one in a series of instructional aids designed for use by elementary and secondary school science teachers. First, the original natural scene of the eastern portion of the United States is described, from the Atlantic Coast to the Mississippi River, as it probably was before European man invaded in great numbers. How local conditions affect plant and animal species and how variances in these species can be used to indicate subtle aspects of local environmental conditions are considered next. Finally, practical examples are presented as exercises in reading the landscape and in seeing a whole view by carefully using a few parts. (Author/PR)
