About this book

Aimed at Masters, and PhD students, teachers, researchers and natural resource managers, Restoration Ecology explores the interface between restoration ecology and ecological restoration.

It is written by an excellent group of ecologists from centres across Europe with a strong reputation for restoration ecology. It is the only textbook around aimed specifically at advanced undergraduate courses and postgraduate study programmes.
