In April 1993, a national conference sponsored by the Center for Plant Conservation brought together academic biologists, agency staff members, activists, and other experts to critically explore the value of ecological restoration as a conservation strategy. Restoring Diversity examines and expands on issues set forth at that gathering. Topics covered include: the strategic and legal context for rare plant restoration the biology of restoration use (and misuse) of mitigation in rare plant conservation case studies from across the United States Restoring Diversity is a pathbreaking work that not only unifies concepts in the field of restoration, but also fills significant technical and policy gaps, and provides operational tools for successful restorations.

Edward O. Guerrant, Jr. is Conservation Director at the Berry Botanic Garden in Portland, Oregon.
The reintroduction of species to their natural habitat is one of the emerging tools of ecosystem management, due to the continuing and accelerating loss and degradation of biological diversity. Restoring Diversity: Strategies For Reintroduction Of Endangered Species is a collection of writings by scientists and practitioners examining the strategy, biology, and application of reintroduction as a conservation tool. It provides systematic guidelines for environmental professionals. Topics covered include the strategic and legal context for rare plant restoration, the biology of restoration, use (and misuse) of mitigation in rare plant conservation, and case studies from across the United States. Restoring Diversity is a pathbreaking work filled with significant technical and policy observations and recommendations, and provides operational tools for successful restorations. Restoring Diversity is also recommended for the non-specialist general reader with a serious interest in restoring ecological environments, and should be added to all academic, community, and environmental organization library reference shelves. -- Midwest Book Review
