What Should a Clever Moose Eat?

Natural History, Ecology, and the North Woods

By John Pastor; Foreword by Bernd Heinrich
Island Press
In What Should a Clever Moose Eat?, John Pastor explores the natural history of the ecologically rich North Woods, illuminating the discoveries waiting behind each fallen tree or beaver pond. As Pastor moves from the geological history of the region to the shapes of leaves and the relationship between aspens, caterpillars, and predators, the range of his essays reflects the diversity of the North Woods themselves. Through his careful observations, Pastor shows readers -- scientists and nonscientists alike -- how to see the world in a new way, asking their own questions and making crucial connections. With this vital ability, Pastor argues, we will not only be better scientists, but better citizens, equipped with a greater understanding of the natural world and renewed desire to protect it.
John Pastor, a professor of biology at the University of Minnesota, Duluth, is a highly distinguished ecologist with a very strong record of scientific research. His teaching and research focus on the natural history and ecology of northern ecosystems.
