Product Description

Review

"This book reviews related theoretical issues, case studies from around the world and specific strategies to increase the restoration of natural capital."
(Wildlife Activist)


"In a time when humanity is in ecological overshoot, steady-state economics is no longer sufficient. Moving beyond a state of overshoot, however, requires that we learn how to restore natural capital. Hence I warmly welcome this volume. It provides not only road maps and tools, but also a pragmatic approach: rather than merely lamenting about the state of the biosphere, it shows that we can, and need to, make a difference."
(Mathis Wackernagel Executive Director, Global Footprint Network)


"Economic logic says we should invest in the limiting factor. In yesterday's empty world that meant investing in human-made capital; in today's full world it means investing in natural capital. Fallowing is the traditional way to invest in natural capital. To discover modern analogs to fallowing, read this important book."
(Herman E. Daly Professor, School of Public Policy, University of Maryland)


"This book is our first road map beyond the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment. It teaches us how to repair our wounded planet, ensuring that nature's services vital to human and ecosystem survival are restored before we reach critical thresholds. The authors weave a closely intertwined series of arguments and cases to show how economic values can only be maintained if we protect and restore the natural environment."
(Peter H. May President-elect, International Society for Ecological Economics)


"The book should be of interest to all those who are concerned with not merely understanding the intellectual challenges of ecological restoration, but also with how to implement it in the field. Ecologists sensing they might need a new set of perspectives and tools to do this will find this an instructive and useful book."
(Ecological Restoration)


"The editors contend that 'ecological restoration must be practiced as if people matter' ... Summing Up: Recommended."
(CHOICE)
