A revised version of the final draft of Dr. Jane Claire Dirks-Edmunds's doctoral dissertation was published in Ecological Monographs in 1947. In her dissertation, Dirks-Edmunds compared the Douglas fir forest community on Saddleback Mountain in Oregon to an oak-hickory community in Illinois. Dirks-Edmunds, a 1937 graduate of Linfield College, graduated from the University of Illinois in 1941; she returned to teach in the Biology department at Linfield from 1941-1974.
