520    Ecological restoration is a rapidly growing discipline 
       that encompasses a wide range of activities and brings 
       together practitioners and theoreticians from a variety of
       backgrounds and perspectives, ranging from volunteer 
       backyard restorationists to highly trained academic 
       scientists and professional consultants. This book offers 
       a comprehensive and coherent account of the field for 
       everyone who initiates, finances, designs, administers, 
       issues government permits for, manages, and implements 
       ecological restoration projects, and all those who serve 
       in supportive roles. Originally published in 2007, this 
       revised and reorganized edition brings the book up to date
       with new developments and current trends in the field. In 
       a lively, personal fashion, the authors discuss scientific
       and practical aspects of the field as well as the human 
       needs and values that motivate practitioners. The book - 
       identifies fundamental concepts upon which restoration is 
       based - considers the principles of restoration practice -
       explores the diverse values that are fulfilled with the 
       restoration of ecosystems - reviews the structure of 
       restoration practice, including the various contexts for 
       restoration work, the professional development of its 
       practitioners, and the relationships of restoration with 
       allied fields and activities. The book also includes case 
       studies and Virtual Field Trips around the world that 
       illustrate points made in the book with on-the-ground 
       information from those who were intimately involved with 
       the projects described. Throughout, ecological restoration
       is conceived as a holistic endeavor, one that addresses 
       issues of ecological degradation, biodiversity loss, 
       personal engagement, and sustainability science 
       simultaneously, and draws upon cultural resources and 
       local skills and knowledge in restoration work.
