Ecology, Engineering, and Management : Reconciling Ecosystem Rehabilitation and Service Reliability
This book presents an introduction, overview and extension of ecosystem management and environmental restoration principles and applications. It develops a new framework and approach to improving the environment through extensive case studies and analysis of environmental rehabilitation initiatives in the San Francisco Bay-Delta, Florida Everglades, Columbia River Basin in the Pacific Northwest, and the Green Heart region of western Netherlands. The book's comparative and integrative approach, with its grounding in ecology, engineering and management, will appeal to those working wherever population, resources and environment are in conflict.
