Ecological Restoration provides a comprehensive overview of the strategies being used around the world to reverse human impacts to landscapes, ecosystems, and species. This book aims to improve the outcomes of restoration practice by strengthening the connections between ecological concepts and real-world decision-making: students explore each topic considering both research-based knowledge and lessons learned from nineteen actual restorations. Details of these ecological restorations, from underwater reefs to mines in hot deserts, are woven into each chapter, presented as case studies, and used in exercises. Because introductory ecological restoration courses are taken by undergraduate students from a wide variety of academic backgrounds, the book explains and applies basic concepts from many supporting fields that serve as the foundation for practice, including ecology, conservation biology, earth and water sciences, environmental design, and public policy.

Consequently, this course also introduces a range of suitable technologies for the remediation of different types of contaminated land including clean-up methods for soils, sediments and water. Ecological restoration can be performed on land that has been degraded due to mining, soil erosion, extreme climatic conditions etc., for wetlands destroyed due to landfills and conversion, and for water-bodies that are affected by Eutrophication or have been polluted due to chemical discharge, sewage disposal, and agricultural run-off.
