Good Book on Ecological Restoration

Restoring Ecological Health to Your Land by Steven I. Apfelbaum and Alan Haney

Here is a great book for practitioners of ecological restoration and budding restorationists.
Restoring Ecological Health to Your Land is the first practical guidebook to give restorationists and would-be restorationists with little or no scientific training or background the “how to” information and knowledge they need to plan and implement ecological restoration activities. The book gives step-by-step process for developing, implementing, monitoring, restoration projects. Steeped in land ethic and solid ecology, this volume spells out the route for restoration, from initial concept to planning, implementation, and long-term management. Great book.

Steven I. Apfelbaum is chairman of Applied Ecological Services Inc., a company he founded in 1975. He has worked on design, construction, management, monitoring, and research of ecosystems and has taught ecosystem restoration to land trusts, conservation organizations, and families interested in restoring their property.

Alan Haney is a forest ecologist and emeritus professor of forestry and former dean of the College of Natural Resources, University of Wisconsin–Stevens Point. His research and teaching focus on ecosystem structure and function, including restoration ecology.
