This upper-level undergraduate and graduate text explains the similarities, differences, and interactions between restoration ecology and ecological restoration by describing both theory and practice. In a series of integrated articles it explains the concepts of restoration ecology, the ecological foundations of the study and practice, perspectives on a variety of sites, such as dry grasslands, mores, forests, rivers, lakes, salt marshes and alpine ecosystems, and challenges anticipated in the future in both theory and practice. This is also suitable as a reference or review text for practitioners and advanced graduate students.
