"Managing and preserving ecosystems has generally proceeded
piecemeal, with environmentalists focusing on one species or area.
Doyle (ecosystem science, University of Miami) and Drew (law,
University of Miami) address the problem in all its
complexity...This is a practical guide...a book that legislators,
industrialists and all concerned citizens would profit from."

"The authors have achieved a great deal in their clarity of analysis. They provide an excellent model for case studies of this kind through identification of the key dimensions which must be assessed and the key inter-related elements which shape the success or failure of any project...This is indeed a valuable book for anyone who wants to be a stakeholder, actor, analyst or perceptive observer in any major complex action program."
--Electronic Green Journal
"Suitable for consultants, soil scientists, ecologists, biologists, economists, lawyers, and those interested in difficulties with restoring ecosystems and the balance between natural and human worlds."
"This book is the latest in the highly praised Science and Practice of Ecological Restoration series, which offers a foundation of practical knowledge and scientific insight that will also help ecological restoration become a powerful healing tool."
--Abstracts of Public Administration, Development, and Environment
"Broad-scale ecosystem restoration efforts involve a very complex set of ecological and societal components, and the success of any ecosystem restoration project rests on an integrated approach to implementation. Editors Mary Doyle and Cynthia Drew have successfully synthesized many of these factors in this comprehensive volume."
