Publication Date:

In straightforward, easy-to-understand language, Watershed Restoration: Principles and Practices will give you an in-depth understanding of the principles of watershed restoration, how to build partnerships for a restoration program, practices and strategies for achieving restoration, what works and what doesn’t, and what is in store for the future. In addition to providing the scientific, social, and policy frameworks for conducting restoration, the book spotlights how citizen groups, communities, conservation coalitions, private interests, and management agencies are working together to restore watersheds. Case studies address urbanized watershed, farmlands, forestlands, rangelands, and large river systems from New England to California. A critique of these restoration projects summarizes the approaches that offer the best opportunities for long-term success.
