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.
