Australian researchers have recently completed and released a new book titled Ecological Restoration: Moving forward using lessons learned. The book covers a diverse array of ecological restoration topics including grasslands, woodlands, wetlands, temperate and tropical forests.
Spanning 600 pages, it is divided into 16 informative chapters. It features contributions from 101 authors hailing from 21 different countries, showcasing 57 illuminating case studies.
To mark the book’s launch, six distinguished lead authors have been extended an invitation to deliver concise 10-minute presentations, focusing on selected case studies from their respective chapters.
What is ecological restoration?
Ecological restoration, although a relatively new endeavour compared to other disciplines, has gained significant momentum during the past decade as accelerating global change becomes more apparent. It is now widely accepted by the scientific community that to avoid further devastating effects of climate change and biodiversity loss, humanity must determinedly move more to protect and restore natural ecosystems. Many restoration efforts of the past have been ad hoc, site and situation- specific and have often failed to achieve desired outcomes, but over the last decade, many countries are allocating increasingly significant amounts of financial investment towards restoration with the goal of achieving more systematic and predictable outcomes. Today, activities related to restoring ecosystems, natural assets and biodiversity are a global focus.
