Millions of dollars are invested annually to aquatic restoration, yet little guidance exists on how to monitor and evaluate these activities. This long-awaited book provides a practical resource for designing and implementing monitoring and evaluation programs for restoration activities at various scales–from individual, site-specific actions to multiple projects throughout a watershed.
Chapters are organized around the major types of restoration techniques, including road improvements, riparian silviculture, fencing and grazing management, floodplains, estuarine, instream, nutrient enrichment, and acquisitions and conservation easements. Also includes chapters on economic evaluation and monitoring design.
The book will particularly appeal to scientists evaluating restoration techniques, to groups implementing restoration, and to agencies and entities responsible for funding restoration efforts.
