About this Textbook

The importance of restoration continues to grow, and this book integrates the restoration of forest functions into landscape conservation plans. The global conservation organization WWF has made forest landscape restoration a key topic and priority for its environmental work.  Due to the WWF’s extensive global reach, and together with its many partners and counterparts, it has acquired a significant level of experience on the topic of forest restoration at large scales. This book represents the collective body of knowledge and experience of WWF and its many partners--which is collected here for the first time and which will be invaluable to all of those working in the field.  This guide will serve as a first stop for practitioners and researchers in any organization or region and as a key reference on the subject.  Along with concise, practical information for a variety of specific systems and issues, it gives many suggestions for further research.

From the Foreword by Chief Anyaoku, President, WWF International:

"Is it a sign of the times that the Nobel committee chose to award the Nobel Peace prize to Wangari Maathai for having planted 30 million trees?  We believe so. . . .The 21st Century will be a time of forest restoration."

Reviews

From the reviews:

"The World Wildlife Fund, or ‘WWF’ has recently initiated a program of large-scale forested landscape restoration … . Forest Restoration in Landscapes is a compilation of WWF experiences in the establishment, maintenance, and evaluation of these efforts. There are many aspects … that I found quite valuable. Some of the chapters of this book critically evaluated the restoration efforts of the past. … Personally, I found Forest Restoration in Landscapes a useful addition to my reference library." (Don C. Bragg, Landscape Ecology, Vol. 22 (3), 2007)

"A major mission of the World Wildlife Federation (WWF) has been habitat restoration, and forest habitats are a crucial part of that mission. Under the auspices of the WWF, this book uses the expertise of over 70 authors to show how forest restoration can be integrated with other aspects of conservation and landscape development. … This book will serve as a teaching tool and reference for researchers and managers working on forest restoration." (Northeastern Naturalist, Vol. 13 (4), 2006)
