About this book

This is the first practical guidebook to give restorationists and would-be restorationists with little or no scientific training or background the “how to” information and knowledge they need to plan and implement ecological restoration activities.

The first part of the book introduces the process of ecological restoration in simple, easily understood language through specific examples drawn from the authors’ experience in restoring their own lands. The second half shows how that same “thinking” and “doing” can be applied to North America’s major ecosystems and landscapes in any condition or scale.

No other ecological restoration book leads by example and first-hand experience like this one. It represents a unique and important contribution to the literature on restoration.
