From the dust jacket: "Because of the volcano's nearness to major academic, governmental, and commercial centers of ecological research, it was possible to muster a small army of scientists to study the effects of the eruption. This book contains their initial findings concerning the direct effects of volcanism on vegetation, and the subsequent successional recovery of plant communities and ecosystems. Never before have the consequences of a volcanic eruption been so intensively studied, in such an organized fashion, by so many highly qualified researchers."
