The Pacific Northwest is a global ecological “hotspot”because of its relatively

healthy native ecosystems, a high degree of biodiversity, and

the number and scope of restoration initiatives that have been undertaken

there. Restoring the Pacific Northwest gathers and presents the

best examples of state-of-the-art restoration techniques and projects.

It is an encyclopedic overview that will be an invaluable reference not

just for restorationists and students working in the Pacific Northwest,

but for practitioners across North America and around the world.

About the Author:

Dean Apostol is a landscape architect, natural resource planner, writer, and teacher, who lives and works on a small farm near Portland, Oregon.

Review:

"This work summarizes scientific research and presents case studies of applications of ecological restoration in the Pacific Northwest, composed for the purposes of this work of all of the watersheds that flow to the Pacific Ocean through North America's temperate rainforest zone."
(Reference & Research Book News)

"This courageous and ambitious work makes us recognize that restoration should no longer be seen as many small, piecemeal attempts at site restoration, but as a massive and coordinated movement to revive and strengthen the networks of natural capital and landscape that sustain our cultures, communities, and economies. The multiple authors are to be commended for pulling together in one place such a comprehensive, deep, and ultimately practical guide to what can and should be done to restore a whole region."
(Stephen R. J. Sheppard Director of Collaborative for Advanced Landscape Planning, University of British Columbia, Vancouver)

"Interest in environmental restoration has exploded in the Pacific Northwest in the last decade. Legions of volunteers and professionals, biologists and planners have been getting their hands dirty, combining science with practice to learn what really works. Restoring the Pacific Northwest is the inspirational, practical, essential reference we all have been waiting for."
(Sara Vickerman senior director of biodiversity partnerships, Defenders of Wildlife)

"Showcasing nine seminal habitat types and illustrating six distinct restoration approaches through more than three dozen case studies, Dean Apostol and Marcia Sinclair have assembled a tour de force, state-of-ecosystem-restoration practice in the Pacific Northwest. All who care about the world our grandchildren inherit owe the authors a heartfelt thanks."
(David W. Hulse Philip H. Knight Professor in Landscape Architecture, University of Oregon)
