Life Zone Ecology. Holdridge, L. R. & Tosi, J. A.
Life Zone Ecology [link]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
Holdridge's concept of 'life zones' as the major units of ecological classification is based on the relations between 'biotemperature' (the mean of the annual temperature between 0°and 30°C.), mean total annual precipitation and potential evapotranspiration ratio. This concept is developed in chapters dealing with the association, succession, the soil, the atmosphere, water, human ecology, land-use planning and productivity. An appendix contains 100 photos (J. A. Tosi Jr.) illustrating aspects of natural vegetation and land utilization in some life zones of Central and (northern) South America.
