Plants Acknowledgments

The valuable contributions of Drs. James Bidlack and Shelley Jansky in rewriting Chapters 3 and 10, and 13 and 14 respectively, are gratefully acknowledged. Dr. Martha Phillips' input on Chapter 25 was also much appreciated. All but two of the boxed readings are written by Dr. Daniel Scheirer, whose contributions continue to add value to the text. We also are very grateful to Dr. Manuel Molles for his highlighted summaries of the ecological aspects of each chapter.

Additional persons who read parts of the manuscripts of various editions and made many helpful criticisms and suggestions include Richard S. Demaree, Jr., Robert I. Ediger, Larry Hanne, Donald T. Kowalski, Robert B. McNairn, Patricia Parker, and Robert A. Schlising. Others whose encouragement and contributions are deeply appreciated include Isabella A. Abbott, Donald E. Brink, Jr., Gerald Carr, William F. Derr, Timothy Devine, Beverly Marcum, Robert McNulty, Paul C. Silva, Lorraine Wiley, the faculty and staff of the Department of Biological Sciences, California State University, Chico, my many inspiring students, the Lyon Arboretum of the University of Hawaii, the editorial, production, and design staffs of McGraw-Hill Publishers, and most of all, my family. Special thanks are due the artists, Denise Robertson Devine, Janet Monelo, and Sharon Stern.
