“The year 1989 is the one-hundredth anniversary of the first major scientific expedition to the San Francisco Peaks near Flagstaff, a two-month-long survey led by Dr. C. Hart Merriam that resulted in his development of the life zones concept. Published in 1890, Merriam’s report was a milestone in the development of the field of ecology, then in its infancy. […] In recognition of C. Hart Merriam’s legacy and in celebration of the centennial of his San Francisco Peaks expedition, this issue of Plateau presents a look at the life and accomplishments of Merriam, the story of his expedition, and the life zone concept.” - Arthur M. Phillips, III, Dorothy A. House, Barbara G. Phillips, authors
