Restoration ecology is an interdisciplinary field which requires the integration of ecology, economics and societal issues to solve a diverse suite of environmental challenges. It is a globally recognised field of relevance to urban environments, the mining industry and agriculture. This subject uses real world case studies to provide a basis for how ecological restoration projects can be effectively undertaken. An emphasis is on discussing the importance of an adaptive management framework, including well designed monitoring programs.
