Assembly Rules and Restoration Ecology: Bridging the Gap Between Theory and Practice (Science and Practice of Ecological Restoration)

Assembly Rules and Restoration Ecology: Bridging the Gap Between Theory and Practice (Science and Practice of Ecological Restoration) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Understanding how ecosystems are assembled — how the species that make up a particular biological community arrive in an area, survive, and interact with other species — is key to successfully restoring degraded ecosystems. Yet little attention has been paid to the idea of assembly rules in ecological restoration, in both the scientific literature and in on-the-ground restoration efforts. <BR> Assembly Rules and Restoration Ecology, edited by Vicky M. Temperton, Richard J. Hobbs, Tim Nuttle, and Stefan Halle, addresses that shortcoming, offering an introduction, overview, and synthesis of the potential role of assembly rules theory in restoration ecology. It brings together information and ideas relating to ecosystem assembly in a restoration context, and includes material from a wide geographic range and a variety of perspectives. <BR> Assembly Rules and Restoration Ecology contributes new knowledge and ideas to the subjects of assembly rules and restoration ecology and represents an important summary of the current status of an emerging field. It combines theoretical and practical aspects of restoration, making it a vital compendium of information and ideas for restoration ecologists, professionals, and practitioners.<BR>

Book News Annotation:

The anthology of 20 studies was inspired by, though apparently does not actually document, an October 2001 workshop in Dornburg, Germany, which gathered scientists from a variety of backgrounds linked by the issue of ecological assembly rules and their applicability to restoration ecology and ecological restoration projects. They cover the search for a conceptual framework for restoration ecology, ecological filters as a form of assembly rule, community structure, severely disturbed environments, and disturbances and assembly.
