Restoration Ecology

Written by an excellent group of ecologists from centres across Europe with a strong reputation for restoration ecology, Restoration Ecology has just been published and is now in stock.

“Jelte van Andel and James Aronson do a splendid job of pulling together recent European work in this area in an organized and effective way. This book synthesizes current thinking in restoration ecology and provides an up-to-date source book which will be useful to restoration ecologists everywhere.” Richard Hobbs, Murdoch University, Western Australia

“Restoration Ecology will foster communication and synthesis between those who practice restorations and those who conduct ecological research, particularly in the battlefields of Europe. It is a valuable assessment of work at this exciting interface.” Trends in Ecology and Evolution

Congress Report

We have been at the International Botanical Congress in Vienna for three days now and are having an absolutely fantastic time. It’s been great to talk to some old customers and make lots of new ones. We have been getting a real feel for what’s important for today’s botanists and, what titles they would really like to see published in the near future.
