Foundations of Restoration Ecology

The practice of ecological restoration provides governments, organizations, and landowners a means to halt degradation and restore function to stressed ecosystems. Foundational theory is a critical component of the underlying science, providing valuable insights into restoring ecological systems and understanding why some efforts can fail.

Foundations of Restoration Ecology, Second Edition, has been dramatically updated to reflect new research in restoration ecology, including new sections on specific ecosystem processes, including hydrology, nutrient dynamics, and carbon.  Case studies describe real-life restoration scenarios in North and South America, Europe, and Australia. Lists at the end of each chapter summarize new theory and practical applications.

Written by acclaimed researchers in the field, this book provides practitioners as well as graduate and undergraduate students with a solid grounding in the newest advances in ecological science and theory.
