Review Text

  • By Herbalism on September 12, 2014

    I first read Redesigned Forest 14 years ago and have reread it twice and thought it was still out of print. I wrote to the author to encourage its reprinting because it is a classic; a scientific treatise written as literature. Apparently he listened even though he has since gone on to chronicle his life as a uniquely successful community organizer. This book is my favorite ecology, nature book and is without peer. It is skillfully written, readable in a single sitting; reading as if a novel and traces the interconnected life of a forest as a living organism from level of protozoa to spotted owl. Spotted owl? Maser is too modest so I volunteer to be his apologist. He is a microbiologist. He is the foremost expert on old growth forest in the Pacific NW and possibly the world. He helped to initiate and supplied the science to confirm the spotted owl controversy that helped to save the last remaining 5-10% of virgin old growth timber stands in the NW.Maser includes a bibliography (foot notes) that includes citations of his microbiological papers, his brother's who is also microbiologist, Rachel Carson, Richard Feinman and even Dr. Zeuss (Lorax). This book should be the foundation textbook to high school and university introductory (lower division) biology classes. It is a must read for all people interested in global warming, economics, indicator species, ecology and saving the Earth.

    The author clearly explains the natural design of a forest, and how science and technology have tried to change that design. If you're interested in knowing about forests, this book is a important addition to your library.
