van Andel, Jelte, James Aronson.

Enlarged, enhanced and internationalized edition of the first restoration ecology textbook to be published. Since 2006, when the first edition of Restoration Ecology appeared, major advances have taken place in restoration science and in the practice of ecological restoration. Both are now accepted as key components of the increasingly urgent search for sustainability at global, national, and community levels – hence the phrase “New Frontier” in the title.

While the first edition focused on ecosystems and landscapes in Europe, this new edition covers biomes and contexts all over the world. Several new chapters deal with broad issues such as biological invasions, climate change, and agricultural land abandonment as they relate to restoration science and ecological restoration. Case studies are included from Australia, North America, and the tropics.

This is an accessible textbook for senior undergraduate and graduate level students, and early career scientists. Restoration Ecology also provides a solid scientific background for managers, volunteers, and mid-career professionals involved in the practice of ecological restoration.
