    Addressing novel ecosystems All restoration sites are novel in that they have conditions and species unlike historical ecosystems. At one end of a restoration site-condition spectrum (Zedler ) are ecosystems with only mild impairments, e.g., a shrub-invaded savanna that might be restored using controlled by: Decisions about how much conservation and restoration investment is appropriate will depend on shifting cultural values about historic fidelity and ecological integrity, sentimentality about ecosystems of the past, local species diversity, priorities for livelihood and sustainability (i.e. historically faithful restorations versus ecosystem Cited by:

    ecosystems, with emphasis on applications for restoration and management of invaded ecosystems. Methods and techniques for prediction, prevention, control, and restoration will be discussed, and plant invasions from Florida and around the U.S. will be used as case studies. Foundations of Restoration Ecology advances the science behind the practice of restoring ecosystems while exploring ways in which restoration .

    The discipline of restoration ecology aims to provide a scientifically sound basis for the reconstruction of degraded or destroyed ecosystems to produce self-supporting systems. This new text provides a current, comprehensive overview of this developing area of study that is ideal for the upper-level undergraduate or graduate level course. Chapter 2: Biodiversity, ecosystems and ecosystem services 5 1 Introduction This chapter explores current understanding of the relationships between biodiversity, the structure and functioning of ecosystems, and the provision of ecosystem services. It aims specifically to clarify.

Ecosystem Restoration is the “process of assisting the recovery of an ecosystem that has been degraded, damaged or destroyed” (SER Primer, ). Medmerry managed realignment at low tide. Many of the world's ecosystems have undergone significant degradation with negative impacts on biological diversity and peoples' livelihoods.

The ecosystem is the quintessential essence of life on our planet, and this crucial life system is showing signs of breaking down. It is likely a more pressing problem than climate change.

SER’s book series, “The Science and Practice of Ecological Restoration”, is published in partnership with Island Press and has grown to include 28 full-length titles. Books cover a wide range of topics, from the scientific principles underlying restoration and the philosophical underpinnings of the discipline, to issues and strategies for restoring specific ecosystem types.
