DESCRIPTION

Ecological Restoration provides a comprehensive overview of the strategies being used around the world to reverse human impacts on landscapes, ecosystems, and species. This book aims to improve the outcomes of restoration practice by strengthening the connections between ecological concepts and real-world decision-making. Students explore each topic considering both research-based knowledge and lessons learned from 19 actual restorations. Details of these ecological restorations, from underwater reefs to mines in hot deserts, are woven into each chapter, presented as case studies, and used in exercises. The book explains and applies basic concepts from many supporting fields that serve as the foundation for practice, including ecology, conservation biology, earth and water sciences, environmental design, and public policy.
