The book ends with four in-depth case studies that demonstrate how various combinations of techniques have been used in restoration projects. "The Historical Ecology Handbook" is a unique and groundbreaking guide to determining historic reference conditions of a landscape. It offers an invaluable compendium of tools and techniques, and will be essential reading for anyone working in the field of ecological restoration.
