The Pacific Northwest is a global ecological "hotspot" because of its relatively healthy native ecosystems, a high degree of biodiversity, and the number and scope of restoration initiatives that have been undertaken there. Restoring the Pacific Northwest gathers and presents the best examples of state-of-the-art restoration techniques and projects. It is an encyclopedic overview that will be an invaluable reference not just for restorationists and students working in the Pacific Northwest, but for practitioners across North America and around the world.
"This work summarizes scientific research and presents case studies of applications of ecological restoration in the Pacific Northwest, composed for the purposes of this work of all of the watersheds that flow to the Pacific Ocean through North America's temperate rainforest zone."
