Title: Ecological restoration [book review]

Author: Gustafson, Eric J.;

Date: 2010

Source: Landscape Ecology. 25: 1303-1304.

Publication Series: Other

Description: Ecological restoration has increased in prominence in recent years as environmental policies have slowed the rate of environmental degradation in many parts of the world and practitioners have looked for active ways to reverse the damage. Because of the vast number of types and contexts of degraded ecological systems, the field of ecological restoration is still very much in its infancy. The principles of landscape ecology are vitally important to the restoration of virtually any ecosystem function, because spatial pattern and ecological function are tightly linked. Because of these complexities, there is a tremendous need for research, synthesis and guidelines to aid restoration practitioners. This volume, edited by Francisco Comin, has the stated goal to offer "strategies for extending ecological restoration on a global scale" and "provide useful ideas and tools for the everyday work of practitioners, professionals, researchers and students."
