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.
