We believe that the emerging science of reintroduction biology can be usefully integrated with the already established field of restoration ecology. Both are relatively young endeavors with obvious philosophical and practical convergences. Indeed, the current division between them is largely artificial and reflects more their distinct historical backgrounds than it does any real epistemological difference. Accordingly, the disciplines of reintroduction biology and restoration ecology have much to gain from one another.
