Ecology and Evolutionary Biology
This early, typewritten draft of the doctoral dissertation by Jane Claire Dirks (later Jane Claire Dirks-Edmunds) contains her edits and notes. Dirks-Edmunds's project compared the Douglas fir forest community on Saddleback Mountain in Oregon to an oak-hickory forest near her graduate school in Illinois.
Dr. Dirks-Edmunds graduated from Linfield College in 1937; she later returned to teach in the Biology department at Linfield from 1941-1974.
