Handbook of Ecological Restoration - Volumes 1 & 2
Edited by Martin R. Perrow, Anthony J. Davy
Cambridge University Press
The two volumes of this handbook provide a comprehensive account of the rapidly
emerging and vibrant science of the ecological restoration of both habitats and species.
Ecological restoration aims to achieve complete structural and functional, self-maintaining
biological integrity following disturbance. In practice, any theoretical model is modified by
a number of economic, social, and ecological constraints. Consequently, material that might
be considered as rehabilitation, enhancement, reconstruction, or re-creation is also included.
Restoration in Practice provides details of state-of-the-art restoration practice in a range of
biomes within terrestrial and aquatic (marine, coastal and freshwater) ecosystems. Policy
and legislative issues on all continents are also outlined and discussed. The accompanying
volume, Principles of Restoration defines the underlying principles of restoration ecology.
The Handbook of Ecological Restoration will be an invaluable resource to anyone concerned
with the restoration, rehabilitation, enhancement or creation of habitats in aquatic or terrestrial
systems, throughout the world.
