Questions for Review
1. Describe a forest passing from disturbance through succession to climax, as theorized (and
idealized) by Frederic Clements.
2. What management implications arose from Clements’ theory of succession? How has
contemporary ecological theory altered these notions?
3. What, generally, does the forest transition theory predict? Should its predictions be received
as unqualified good news?
4. What does it mean to say that forest clearance in the Global South is an extension of colonial
relations with the Global North?
5. Does Christopher Stone’s proposition establish a truly ecocentric basis for forest
conservation and management? How so or why not?
