About this book

Taking the Florida Everglades ecosystem as its working example, this major scientific text presents information on ecosystem patterns, processes, dynamics and restoration approaches. Although concentrating on this one type of system, the methods described have worldwide applications. The first 30 chapters present data on a wide range of ecological parameters, whilst the concluding chapter presents a synthesis of large-scale ecosystem restoration.
