Watershed processes as drivers for aquatic ecosystem restoration / David Moreno-Mateos and Margaret A. Palmer -- 15. Evolutionary restoration ecology / Craig A. Stockwell, Michael T.

The influence of climate variability and change on the science and practice of restoration ecology / David A. Falk and Constance I. Miller.
Summary: "This revised and expanded edition of Foundations of Restoration Ecology delivers the latest emerging theories and ideas in the science of restoration ecology. New sections cover the restoration of specific ecosystem processes, including hydrology, nutrient dynamics, and carbon. Case studies describe real-life restoration scenarios in North and South America, Europe, and Australia"--Cover.
