DR. DIETER MUELLER-DOMBOIS specialty is vegetation ecology, an area in which I wrote a university textbook together with a European colleague (Aims and Methods of Vegetation Ecology, Wiley & Sons, 1974). Based on that background I became particularly interested in vegetation and ecosystem dynamics, an area in which I did research for the past 25 years. Island ecosystems vary along a spectrum of biological diversity and disturbance regimes and often display a special dynamics that is rarely found in continental ecosystems. The differences are elucidating and carry a strong message for forestry and natural area management.
