Synopsis

"Large-Scale Ecosystem Restoration" presents case studies of five of the most noteworthy large-scale restoration projects in the United States: Chesapeake Bay, the Everglades, California Bay Delta, the Platte River Basin, and the Upper Mississippi River System. These projects embody current efforts to address ecosystem restoration in an integrative and dynamic manner, at large spatial scale, involving whole (or even multiple) watersheds, and with complex stakeholder and public roles.Representing a variety of geographic regions and project structures, the cases shed light on the central controversies that have marked each project, outlining: the history of the project; the environmental challenges that generated it; the difficulties of approaching the project on an ecosystem-wide basis; techniques for conflict resolution and consensus building; the ongoing role of science in decision making; and, the means of dealing with uncertainties. A concluding chapter offers a guide to assessing the progress of large-scale restoration projects."Large-Scale Ecosystem Restoration" examines some of the most difficult and important issues involved in restoring and protecting natural systems.

It is a landmark publication for scientists, policymakers, and anyone working to protect or restore landscapes or watersheds.

Mary Doyle is a professor and codirector of the Leonard and Jayne Abess Center for Ecosystem Science and Policy at the University of Miami. Cynthia A. Drew is an associate professor of law at the University of Miami School of Law.
