`The book ... is a balanced overview of reliable and useful techniques by European `continental' ecologists and those defending more strictly mathematical and statistical methods. ... The joint treatment of releve procedures and taxonomic topics is, no doubt, the most valuable aspect of this new volume in the series Handbook of Vegetation Science. Roots of its philosophy and methodology are obviously in European `continental' ecology, however, it is building a useful bridge towards experimental schools `overseas'.'
