The reintroduction of species to their natural habitat is one of the emerging tools of ecosystem management, due to the continuing and accelerating loss and degradation of biological diversity. Restoring Diversity: Strategies For Reintroduction Of Endangered Species is a collection of writings by scientists and practitioners examining the strategy, biology, and application of reintroduction as a conservation tool. It provides systematic guidelines for environmental professionals. Topics covered include the strategic and legal context for rare plant restoration, the biology of restoration, use (and misuse) of mitigation in rare plant conservation, and case studies from across the United States. Restoring Diversity is a pathbreaking work filled with significant technical and policy observations and recommendations, and provides operational tools for successful restorations. Restoring Diversity is also recommended for the non-specialist general reader with a serious interest in restoring ecological environments, and should be added to all academic, community, and environmental organization library reference shelves. -- Midwest Book Review
