“Overall, I think that this book makes a genuinely useful contribution to the fields of scaling and governance and would highly recommend it as reading for those who are grappling with similar issues.” (Restoration Ecology, 1 March 2015)
“As well as being a useful text for university students, the book – particularly those chapters summarising recent thinking on ecological topics relevant to restoration ecology – will be valuable to those already in the field.” (Ecological Management & Restoration, 22 January 2014)
“Not a ‘‘how-to’’ book, but a fine overview of many of the conceptual and interdisciplinary issues involved, and biome-specific overviews that are still European in emphasis, but now more global in scope.” (Restoration Ecology, 1 July 2013)
“All of these texts do an excellent job presenting the complexities of restoring nature, which brings together many disciplines and requires an understanding of the both ecological principles. Their different approaches to the subject matter are complementary and will be a much used resource for academics and practitioners.” (British Ecological Society Bulletin, 1 June 2013)
From the Back Cover
Since 2006, when the first edition of this book appeared, major advances have taken place in restoration science and in the practice of ecological restoration. Both are now accepted as key components of the increasingly urgent search for sustainability at global, national, and community levels – hence the phrase 'New Frontier' in the title.
While the first edition focused on ecosystems and landscapes in Europe, this new edition covers biomes and contexts all over the world. Several new chapters deal with broad issues such as biological invasions, climate change, and agricultural land abandonment as they relate to restoration science and ecological restoration.
This is an accessible textbook for senior undergraduate and graduate level students, and early career scientists. The book also provides a solid scientific background for managers, volunteers, and mid-career professionals involved in the practice of ecological restoration.
