Primary Succession and Ecosystem Rehabilitation

Primary Succession and Ecosystem Rehabilitation

This volume provides the first comprehensive summary of how plant, animal, and microbial communities develop under the harsh conditions following dramatic natural disturbances. The authors examine the basic principles that determine ecosystem development and apply the general rules to the urgent practical need for promoting the reclamation of damaged lands. Written for ecologists concerned with disturbance, landscape dynamics, restoration, life histories, invasions, modeling, soil formation and community or population dynamics, this book also serves as an authoritative text for graduate students and as a valuable reference for professionals involved in land management.


"...this book serves a wide range of audiences and represents a landmark publication in its field. It provides students and researchers with a much needed comprehensive synthesis of patterns and processes of primary succession; it provides land managers with knowledge of mechanisms of primary succession that can potentially improve the success of rehabilitation schemes; and, it provides ecologists with research directions and challenges for the future, and in doing so draws attention to some critical gaps in ecological research." Écoscience

" important book that sets the stage for new research on successional dynamics as it relates to rehabilitation of terrestrial ecosystems. The book will serve as a valuable reference for land managers as they apply concepts of succession to science-based rehabilitation." Ecology

"This book should be welcomed into the growing library of disturbance and restoration publications." Plant Science Bulletin

"...this books provides excellent advice and guidance in our endeavor to restore the ecological integrity of Lehigh Gap and the surrounding lands. This is highly recommended reading for land managers and bureaucrats involved with restoration work, as well as for researchers and students." Wildlife Activist

' ... a comprehensive and facinating overview on theories and impications of primary succession and community of development. The book is an inspiration for disturbance, vegetation and landscape ecologists as well as thoseinvolved in restoration and ecosystem management. This book can read like a profound review, summarizing current knowledge from the pioneer works to very recent findings and including short summaries at the end of most chapters.' Phytocoenlogica
