Summary:
This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the science and the technical and political logistics involved in the process of habitat restoration. The authors offer key insights into how fragmentation affects the viability of diverse varieties of species. The key solution to this crisis, they argue, is to develop corridors that reconnect the surviving patches of natural habitat in the landscape.
