The importance of the climatic and edaphic relations of forests has been the basis for wide discussion and study. The scope of this field is shown in a condensed way in a report of the Sub-Committee on Forest Investigations to the Fifth National Conservation Congress, which discusses studies undertaken up to the time of the report (1913) and presents in general results obtained. Recently, Zon, in a paper, "Forests and Water in the Light of Scientific Investigation," has presented a much more comprehensive view of the subject and the literature. He has attempted to bring together "all the well-established scientific facts in regard to the relation of forests to the water supply." The work includes an extensive bibliography.
