Handbook of Ecological Restoration
The two volumes of this handbook provide a comprehensive account of the rapidly emerging and vibrant science of the ecological restoration of both habitats and species. Ecological restoration aims to achieve complete structural and functional, self-maintaining biological integrity following disturbance. In practice, any theoretical model is modified by a number of economic, social, and ecological constraints. Consequently, material that might be considered as rehabilitation, enhancement, re-construction, or re-creation is also included.
Both volumes are finally available in an affordable paperback version (2008).
