Real World Ecology by Ecological and environmental research has increased in scope and complexity in the last few decades, from simple systems with a few managed variables to complex ecosystems with many uncontrolled variables. These issues encompass problems that are inadequately addressed using the types of carefully controlled experiments that dominate past ecological research. This collection of case studies showcases innovative experimental designs, analytical options, and interpretation possibilities currently available to theoretical and applied ecologists, practitioners, and biostatisticians.

This Land Is Your Land by Field biology is enjoying a resurgence due to several factors, the most important being the realization that there is no ecology, no conservation, and no ecosystem restoration without an understanding of the basic relationships between species and their environments--an understanding gleaned only through field-based natural history.

Ecological Biomarkers by The text explores the latest knowledge and thinking on this very important approach for the assessment of environmental health, management, and conservation. It describes the core biomarkers currently used in environmental research concerned with biological monitoring, biomarkers which correspond to the defenses developed by living organisms in response to contaminants in their environment, and biomarkers that reveal biological damage resulting from contaminant stressors.

Forensic Science in Wildlife Investigations by The range of species that fall within the realm of wildlife crimes is extensive, ranging from ferns and orchids to bald eagles and great whales. Solving these crimes is rarely dependent on the testimony of witnesses or victims. An ever-increasing number of research groups are applying scientific tests to animal and plant studies alike. H

Large-Scale Ecosystem Restoration by Large-Scale Ecosystem Restoration presents case studies of five of the most noteworthy large-scale restoration projects in the United States: Chesapeake Bay, the Everglades, California Bay Delta, the Platte River Basin, and the Upper Mississippi River System. These projects embody current efforts to address ecosystem restoration in an integrative and dynamic manner, at large spatial scale, involving whole (or even multiple) watersheds, and with complex stakeholder and public roles. Representing a variety of geographic regions and project structures, the cases shed light on the central controversies that have marked each project, outlining * the history of the project * the environmental challenges that generated it * the difficulties of approaching the project on an ecosystem-wide basis * techniques for conflict resolution and consensus building * the ongoing role of science in decision making * the means of dealing with uncertainties A concluding chapter offers a guide to assessing the progress of largescale restoration projects. Large-Scale Ecosystem Restoration examines some of the most difficult and important issues involved in restoring and protecting natural systems. It is a landmark publication for scientists, policymakers, and anyone working to protect or restore landscapes or watersheds.
