Restoring the Pacific Northwest: The Art and Science of Ecological Restoration in Cascadia Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:


The Pacific Northwest is a global ecological "hotspot" because of its relatively healthy native ecosystems, a high degree of biodiversity, and the number and scope of restoration initiatives that have been undertaken there. Restoring the Pacific Northwest gathers and presents the best examples of state-of-the-art restoration techniques and projects. It is an encyclopedic overview that will be an invaluable reference not just for restorationists and students working in the Pacific Northwest, but for practitioners across North America and around the world.

About the Author

Dean Apostol is a landscape architect, natural resource planner, writer, and teacher who lives and works on a small farm near Portland, Oregon.
