This collection features scholarly work by John Bishop, professor in the School of Biological Sciences at Washington State University. Bishop's research deals with the response of populations, communities, and ecosystems to catastrophic disturbance. His work on this topic is focused on the plants, animals, and soils of the primary successional Pumice Plain of Mount St. Helens. Much of this work is focused on herbivore effects on keystone plant colonists, such as a Lupin (Lupinus lepidus var. lobbii, and its specialist lepidopterna herbivores), and Willows (Salix sitchensis) and cascading effects on community and ecosystem development.
