Product Description

Review

"A must read for those interested in [managed relocation]... There is more than enoughsubstance in this text to warrant a place on any conservation, restoration, landscape, or geographical ecologist's bookshelf."
(Landscape Ecology)


"A solid and core addition for science and environmental collections, Plant Reintroduction in a Changing Climate is not to be overlooked."
(Midwest Book Review)


"This is an extremely important book which needs to be widely read and more importantly used as stimulus for debate so that we can decide upon the policy and actions which will be required to manage environments and to conserve biodiversity in the future."
(Ecological Management and Restoration)

"...this work will certainly be heavily used and referenced by diverse readers around the world."
(Chicago Botanic Garden Lenhardt Library Current Books)


"Governments worldwide have committed to restoring at least 15 percent of the world's degraded ecosystems by 2020. Plant reintroduction is a vital component of this effort, putting the right species back in the right places. This book is essential reading for all who would join the global task of restoring the earth."
(Sara Oldfield Secretary General, Botanic Gardens Conservation International)


"Plant Reintroduction in a Changing Climate provides a timely and comprehensive review of the science of restoring rare plant species. In our changing world, the threats to plants, and the need for restoration, are both rapidly increasing. This volume provides some of the best thinking on the design and implementation of reintroduction projects and belongs on the bookshelves of all those working to stem the losses of plant biodiversity."
(Kayri Havens Director, Plant and Science Conservation, Chicago Botanic Garden)


"will serve as a very useful resource for anyone interested or involved in the management of rare plants."
(Restoration Ecology)

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful book. I mostly work with wildlife April 27 2016
By L. J. L. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
A wonderful book. I mostly work with wildlife, but it is still very applicable to a wide range of reintroductions. Some excellent chapters in there. It is well edited and pretty easy to read. I highly recommend this for any reintroduction biologist!
