Linking Restoration and Ecological Succession

While studies of restoration and ecological succession have been published independently, there is much overlap between these approaches that has not been adequately explored.

Linking Restoration and Ecological Succession seeks generalizations that relate successional theory to the practice of restoration, by examining data presented from restoration activities around the world and exploring these contrasting environments. This innovative book also emphasizes landscape issues, presenting information valuable to both practitioners of restoration projects and students of ecological theory. Each chapter summarizes the authors' experience in both succession and restoration by focusing on a set of central questions, in order to develop both new theoretical advances in the field of ecosystem restoration and practical tools to improve ecosystem management.
