Of great importance to the vegetation of an area is the duration of the frostfree summer period, often referred to as the growing season. This important parameter of temperature is shown in map 2B. Within the north-central re- 36 ENVIRONMENTS OF THE NORTH-CENTRAL STATES gion, this average value varies from as few as 90 days in parts of northern Wisconsin and Michigan (where late spring frosts result from cold winds blowing across the ice on Lakes Superior and Michigan) to as much as 210 days in extreme southern Illinois.

They recognized four human ecosystem types, which is the term they employed to include environment, subsistence, technology, population, and social organization. Note that this is somewhat of a departure from the common usage of the word ecosystem as typically employed by ecologists. The pioneering ecosystem type, that of Clovis people in the late Pleistocene, persisted in some eastern forested regions into the Holocene. Stoltman and Baerreis (1983) suggested that big-game hunting was probably fundamental, with family groups of 25 or fewer people living as a band and moving freely to exploit new areas.

Surface mining temporarily disrupts terrestrial ecosystems, but plant succession on such areas often results in rich communities, including those of small mammals. Also, in areas lacking natural caves, bats use old mine shafts and tunnels for hibernation sites. As a result, bat populations in such areas as northern Minnesota may be much greater today than at the time of settlement. Also on the positive side, for some mammals at least, is the fact that such activities as timber harvest result in highly productive early serai stages of plant succession.
