This second symposium on the Great Dismal Swamp (the first was in 1911) was held in response to the formation of Dismal Swamp National Wildlife Refuge. Five contributed papes, two bibliogrphic essays, and contributed papers by thirteen authors discuss the ecology of the Swamp, which is one of the largest remaining swamp forests on the southeastern coastal plain. Papers by Levy and Walker (1979) and Whitehead and Oaks (1979) that discuss the effects of fire on the wetlands of Dismal Swamp are included in this bibliography. [K-L-S]
