Just like every restoration project, not all restoration ecology books are the same. Karen Holl’s new book, Primer of Ecological Restoration, is written in straightforward, accessible language for science majors and general audiences alike. The book emphasizes the interdisciplinary nature of the discipline and the need for restorationists to have a working knowledge of everything from ecosystem functioning to project management expertise to public policy and outreach. Should a reader or class instructor wish to delve further into particular areas, the book’s clear coverage of each relevant topic and suggestions for follow-up gives this primer the upper hand over other ecological restoration books.
