Forest Restoration in Landscapes

Forest Restoration in Landscapes

Note from the Editors

Note from the Editors This book has been designed to help readers understand how forest restoration can be integrated with other aspects of conservation and development in landscapes. Parts A, B, and C introduce the elements for planning and implementing restoration on a broad scale, including a range of social, political, and economic considerations that will influence and that will be influenced by any large-scale restoration effort. Part D focusses on more specific issues, including restoration in different forest habitats and for different reasons. While we believe that successful restoration generally needs to be planned on a large scale, it will probably be implemented in one or more sites within a landscape, and the book similarly starts with very broad-scale considerations and then focusses increasingly on actions that can be taken at the site. Parts A, B, and C thus provide what could be seen as the foundations, and part D provides some much more specific tools and considerations that are applicable in different situations. We recommend that you read the relevant chapters in part D once you have read all of parts A, B, and C. The final part (part E) discusses some of the lessons learned to date from practical experiences and recommendations for future work related to forest restoration on a large scale. Each chapter starts with an introduction to the issue, illustrating it with a series of brief thumbnail examples, showing, where appropriate, both good and bad practice. Some useful tools are then listed followed by a brief description of future work required and finally and importantly a set of references. We cover a vast subject here and each chapter is as a result kept deliberately short, we can only introduce many of the techniques described but have provided detailed sources for those who wish to follow up specific issues in greater detail. The book includes contributions from a large number of authors. Although we have all been writing within the framework of forest landscape restoration, there are inevitably different nuances in how this should be interpreted and applied. What follows is a set of experienced opinions rather than a rigid blueprint. We will in turn very much appreciate hearing feedback, criticism, and experience from users. ix
