As the human impact on the earth leads to ever increasing environmental degradation, the restoration of dwindling populations of numerous plant and animal species has become urgent. In this volume, contributors examine the conceptual, planning, and applied aspects of recovery of rare or endangered species. It is unique in its treatment of both plants and animals, and in its presentation of scientific approaches to implemented restorations. Experts report on the restoration efforts and plans for the restoration of a wide variety of species including the dune thistle, lakeside daisy, woodland caribou, kit fox, and black-footed ferret and end with a broad overview, suggesting future opportunities and problems.
