Editorial Reviews


In Forests in Peril, Delcourt tells the fascinating story of her quest for the origins of American hardwood forests. While her topic is serious and scholarly, her writing style is spirited, her descriptions enchanting, and the personal spin on her life's work engaging. I whole-heartedly recommend Forests in Peril to botanists, ecologists, foresters, policymakers, as well as to anyone interested in Quaternary paleobotany, in the workings of paleontological science, or simply in the glorious deciduous forests of eastern North America. --Carole T. Gee, Plant Systematics and Evolution, Vol 248: 249-250, 2004

Dr. Delcourt grew up in Muskegon, Michigan, and holds degrees from Albion College (Biology), LSU (Botany), and The University of Minnesota (Quaternary Palaeoecology). She worked at Oak Ridge National Laboratory from 1978 to 1981, and has been at The University of Tennessee since 1982.
