Restoration ecology is the scientific study supporting the practice of ecological restoration, which is the practice of renewing and restoring degraded, damaged, or destroyed ecosystems and habitats in the environment by active human intervention and action.

Effective restoration requires an explicit goal or policy, preferably an unambiguous one that is articulated, accepted, and codified. SER’s book series, “The Science and Practice of Ecological Restoration”, is published in partnership with Island Press and has grown to include 28 full-length titles.

Books cover a wide range of topics, from the scientific principles underlying restoration and the philosophical underpinnings of the discipline, to issues and strategies for restoring specific ecosystem types and field.

The book is based on peer‐reviewed invited papers presented at the First International Conference on Restoration Ecology and Sustainable Development held in Zurich in under the patronage of the European Ecological Foundation.
