Restoration Ecology fosters the exchange of ideas among the many disciplines involved in the process of ecological restoration. Addressing global concerns and communicating them to the international scientific community, the journal is at the forefront of a vital new direction in science and ecology.

    This book does an admirable job summarizing the current state of a diverse and ever-changing field."--Truman P. Young, Ecological Restoration "Finally, with the publication of Ecological Restoration by Susan M. Galatowitsch, students and other users will have a more circumspect and comprehensive understanding of what really is required of. Ecological Restoration provides a comprehensive overview of the strategies being used around the world to reverse human impacts to landscapes, ecosystems, and species.
