About this book

This is the first practical guidebook to give restorationists and would be restorationists with little or no scientific training or background the 'how to' information and knowledge they need to plan and implement ecological restoration activities. The first part of the book introduces the process of ecological restoration in simple, easily understood language through specific examples drawn from the authors' experience in restoring their own lands. The second half shows how that same 'thinking' and 'doing' can be applied to North America's major ecosystems and landscapes in any condition or scale. Cosponsored by the Society for Ecological Restoration International and Island Press, this series offers a foundation of practical knowledge and scientific insight that will help ecological restoration become the powerful reparative and healing tool that the world needs.

There is also a companion workbook.
