Project Planning and Management for Ecological Restoration

Island Press
Concern over climate change and the ongoing challenges of managing natural lands have made the field of ecological restoration a growing focus in the agendas of national and international conservation organizations, including the United Nations. The problems facing us are both complex and urgent – and effective solutions are vital. Project Planning and Management for Ecological Restoration presents principles of sound planning and management that will greatly increase the likelihood that projects will be successful. John Rieger, John Stanley, and Ray Traynor have been involved in restoration activities for nearly thirty years, inventing and adapting techniques as well as developing and applying methods as they broke ground for this new field. Rieger and Stanley were part of the small group who, recognizing the need for a professional organization, helped to found the Society for Ecological Restoration in 1987. This book comes out of their experience of doing restoration, through trial and error, setting goals and methodology, and learning what works.
