Two former graduate students in Ecology and Evolutionary biology, Kenneth J. Metzler and Juliana Barrett, are the authors of the first book classifying all of Connecticut's plants. The Vegetation of Connecticut: A Preliminary Classification has been in preparation since the early 1990s. Data collection by various ecologists, many of them UConn faculty and students, dates back 25 years. "It took a lot longer than I thought it was going to take," said Metzler. The book will guide researchers, developers, land trusts, and towns as they consider the environmental impact of land use and resource management. It will provide a comprehensive baseline against which environmental changes can be measured, said Barrett. It already shows that "there are many areas where there is heavy deer browsing and the whole shrub layer is nonexistent."
