From the reviews:

"This volume is a highly valuable, almost complete contribution to the study of these widespread oak mountain ecosystems. … The present volume synthesises an impressive amount of data and information in many ways. It provides a very sound basis for future research … . In general, it is a remarkable volume of the ‘Ecological Studies’ series, which would deserve a wider distribution." (Siegmar-W. Breckle, Phytocoenologia, Vol. 37 (2), 2007)

"This book summarizes current knowledge about neotropical montane oak ecosystems. … This book will be great value to managers, researchers, teachers, and students who work in the Americas neotropical montane region. It also will be valuable to ecologists, forest managers, and researchers throughout the world … ." (Brain Roy Lockhart, Mountain Research & Development, Vol. 27 (3), 2007)
