Project Planning and Managemfor Ecological Restoration
Project Planning and Managemfor Ecological Restoration addresses a problem that is the reason many currrestoration projects are not as effective or successful as they could be: a lack of understanding of the principles of sound planning and management. John Rieger, John Stanley, and Ray Traynor, who collectively have decades of experience implementing successful restoration projects, provide a straightforward framework for developing and executing an ecological restoration project in order to maximize its potential for success.
The authors focus on process, planning, design, implementation, and managemrather than science. They describe a simple project managemplan, identify the design approaches and the commitments that decisions require, and explain how design theory is translated to on-the-ground project design. The book includes numerous illustrations, as well as a series of checklists and tables to help restorationists recognize and then correct problems that may arise.
