This reference presents the best practices for fostering increased sustainability, enhancing biodiversity, and repairing ecosystem functions in one comprehensive volume. It summarizes the breadth of restoration protocols at both the local and regional scale and documents and compares over 20 case studies of forest restoration projects in a geographically diverse range of temperate and boreal zones. The authors take into account the impact of human activities from a historical and cultural context and consider regional socioeconomic needs in developing a sustainable forest management plan. The book provides insight into how logistical questions are currently being answered for temperate and boreal forests. By addressing both ecological and sociopolitical needs, this book presents practical solutions for the restoration, rehabilitation, reclamation, and management of forest ecosystems.
