Dr. Andrew D. Carver is an Associate Professor of Forestry atSouthern Illinois University Carbondale. Dr. Carver graduated witha M.S. in Forest Economics and Policy and a Ph.D. in Agronomy fromPurdue University. Dr. Carver's research focuses on theoretical andapplied mathematical modeling of environmental systems andhuman-environmental interactions, geo-spatial decision supporttools for ecological landscape analysis and the role of naturalresources and ecosystems in domestic and international economicdevelopment. Dr. Carver has most recently published researcharticles in journals such as Forest Policy and Economics, Journalof Environmental Management, Society and Natural Resources,Environmental Science and Policy, and Agroforestry Systems. He wasPrinciple Investigator of a grant from the U.S. Forest Service toproduce an ecological/land classification system for the ShawneeNational Forest using GIS, and is a co-author of the researchreport from that project (Fralish, et al. Presettlement, Present,and Projected Forest Communities of the Shawnee National Forest,2002); 145 pages).

Dr. James S. Fralish is an Adjunct Associate Professor(Emeritus) in the Department of Forestry at Southern IllinoisUniversity-Carbondale. He received degrees from Michigan StateUniversity (B.S. and M.S.) in forestry and a Ph.D. degree in plantecology and botany from the University of Wisconsin, Madison.During his 25 years with the Department, he taught courses inforest ecology, soils, site evaluation, tree physiology, forestecosystems and research methods, as well as tree identification andflora of southern Illinois. His research has concentrated on forestspecies and communities, and their relationship to physical sitefactors and disturbance, and presettlement vegetation. Dr. Fralishauthored the textbook Taxonomy and Ecology of Woody Species inNorth American Forests (Fralish and Franklin, 2002, John Wiley& Sons). He has co-edited four books including John T. Curtis:Forty Years of Wisconsin Plant Ecology (Fralish, McIntire, andLoucks, 1993, Wisconsin Academy of Science, Letters, and Arts),Savannah, Barrens, and Rock Outcrop Plant Communities of NorthAmerica (Anderson, Fralish & Baskin, 1999, Cambridge UniversityPress), Land Between The Lakes, Kentucky and Tennessee: Forty Yearsof Tennessee Valley Authority Stewardship (Chester & Fralish,2002, Austin Peay State University), The Porcupine WildernessJournals (C.
