Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Frank Edwin Egler (26 April 1911 - 26 December 1996) was an American plant ecologist and pioneer in the study of vegetation science. He is of historical significance through his assistance to Rachel Carson in preparing Silent Spring. Egler was born in New York City, growing up on Manhattan's West Side. Fifth-grade bird-watching trips to green spaces in the city instilled a love of nature in the frail boy ). He went on to the New York State College of Forestry at Syracuse to pursue a career in landscape engineering, but switched to plant ecology and the University of Chicago, graduating in 1932. At Chicago, he was a student in the last course taught by Henry C. Cowles.
