Restoring the Pacific Northwest

December 4, 2006

Restoring the Pacific Northwest5

Important Note: You may view the following material in the TCC Library Catalog, check on availability, and place a hold (if you are a TCC student/staff/faculty member) by clicking here.

From the book jacket: The Pacific Northwest is a global ecological “hotspot” because of its relatively healthy native ecosystems, a high degree of biodiversity, and the number and scope of restoration initiatives that have been undertaken there. Restoring the Pacific Northwest gathers and presents the best examples of state-of-the-art restoration techniques and projects.

It is an encyclopedic overview that will be an invaluable reference, not just for restorationists and students working in the Pacific Northwest, but for practitioners across North America and around the world.
