About the Edition

Whitebark pine is declining across much of its range in North America because of the combined effects of mountain pine beetle epidemics, fire exclusion policies, and widespread exotic blister rust infections. This management guide summarizes the extensive data collected at whitebark pine treatment sites for three periods: (1) pre-treatment, (2) 1 year post-treatment, and (3) 5 years post-treatment (one site has a 10 year post-treatment measurement). Study results are organized here so that managers can identify possible effects of a treatment at their own site by matching it to the most similar treatment unit in this study, based on vegetation conditions, fire regime, and geographical area. This guide is based on the Restoring Whitebark Pine Ecosystems study, which was initiated in 1993 to investigate the effects of various restoration treatments on tree mortality, regeneration, and vascular plant response on five sites in the northern Rocky Mountains. The objective was to enhance whitebark pine regeneration and cone production using treatments that emulate the native fire regime. Since data summaries are for individual treatment units, there are no analyses of differences across treatment units or across sites.

Covington et al./Ecosystem Restoration and Management Ecological restoration is related to other practices of ecological healing such as rehabilitation, reclamation, and bioremediation, although the goals of ecosystem restoration (restoration of natural conditions) are gen-erally more ambitious (MacMahon and Jordan ).

Ecosystem Restoration is thus a significant contribution to the application of the Ecosystem Approach, e.g. in informing the negotiation of land use options and enhancement of healthy ecological networks.

The Commission on Ecosystem Management (CEM) has identified Ecosystem Restoration as one of its 19 priority thematic ://   Ecological restoration is an activity that ideally results in the return of an ecosystem to an undisturbed state.

Ecosystem services are the benefits humans derive from ecosystems. The two have been joined to support growing environmental markets with the goal of creating restoration-based credits that can be bought and sold.

However, the allure of these markets may be overshadowing This open access book surveys the frontier of scientific river research and provides examples to guide management towards a sustainable future of riverine ecosystems.

Principal structures and functions of the biogeosphere of rivers are explained; key threats are identified, and effective solutions for restoration and mitigation are ://   ecological restoration should work on mosaics of ecosystems and ecotones over large landscapes, while at the same time paying close attention to localized species populations, isolated habitats, and the smaller levels of ecological organization.

We define ecological restoration as a practical management strategy that restores ecological 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.

“Overall, what this book provides is a good starting point for anyone who wants to study in more depth the various components that together result in a successful river restoration project. To this end, this book provides exactly what it says it does in the title.” (Restoration Ecology, 1 November )    Basic Principles.

A paradigm of ecological restoration assumes that barriers or thresholds may exist, which prevent the recovery of ecosystems from a degraded stage without management inputs (Hobbs and Norton, ; Suding and Hobbs, ; Whisenant, ).Identification of these thresholds is used as a basis for selecting interventions that will overcome them and stimulate ecosystem Ecosystem Restoration and Management: Scientific Principles and Concepts implementation of ecological restoration treatments - J.K., and R.L.
