Restoration Ecology: A Synthetic Approach to Ecological Research

by

Restoration Ecology: A Synthetic Approach to Ecological Research Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book explores the ecological concepts and ideas involved in the practice of habitat restoration by taking a theoretical approach that will appeal to ecologists concerned with the structure and dynamics of communities. The contributors examine aspects of this new realization and its implications for both ecology and the practice of habitat restoration. What emerges is the outline of a new paradigm for ecological research and the basis for a stronger relationship between theory and practice in this area.

Synopsis:

The contributors examine the idea of a synthetic approach to ecological research, which incorporates both practical restoration and theoretical ecology. The implications of this approach both for ecology and habitat restoration are explored.
