From the reviews:"Linking restoration and ecological succession successfully convinces the reader that the concepts and theories of succession should be considered in restoration science and during the planning and implementation of restoration projects. ... Overall, the book is a nice contribution to restoration sciences. ... I would consider this text relevant to all restoration practitioners and restoration scientists should have a copy of the book sitting on the shelf for reference." (Randy Kolka, Ecology, Vol. 89 (3), 2008)"The present book tries to examine the ties between theory and practice of succession and restoration in more depth. The book is divided into eight chapters. Each chapter starts with three to four key points summarizing its objectives. ... I would highly recommend this book for introductory reading on the subject. ... provide good input papers into seminars on Ecological Restoration at the Masters and Ph.D. level." (Gerhard Wiegleb, Basic and Applied Ecology, Vol. 9, 2008)"It provides excellent and personal views on restoration and succession from twenty expert authors from all over the world. The book was a valuable opportunity to compare individual approaches in a limited space. ... Beginners or readers not familiar with restoration or succession will of course receive a short introduction to succession and restoration background, and their history and common concepts." (Jan Pergl, Folia Geobotanica, Vol. 44, 2009)
