Authors: Marta S. Alonso and Irene M. Rubio 
Book Description:
Ecological management is focused on maintaining and enhancing the natural values of land to conserve biological diversity. Land protection alone, however, does little to preserve the character of a natural area if impacts such as the introduction of invasive alien plants, or hydrologic disturbances are not also addressed. With continuing alteration of the land by human activity, many ecosystems have become fragmented or reduced to isolated islands surrounded by agricultural fields or developed areas. Ecological management is the key to successful stewardship and can be subdivided into five general catagories: conservation planning, restoration, prescribed management, research and monitoring.This new book presents the latest research in the field.
