Biodiversity and ecosystem functioning: Synthesis and perspectives

November 30, 2004

Does diversity matter in restored communities? This edited book explores the diversity–function debate, which has raged in ecology during the past several decades. The diversity–function question is relevant in restoration, but the question has not yet received a straightforward hearing in the field of restoration science. None of the authors of this book explicitly relate their ideas to restoration, but the book can educate restorationists about the most recent developments in the diversity–function debate. It is also an excellent book for students to learn about the recent developments and historical background of the diversity–function debate and can be used for graduate-level seminars in restoration or plant ecology.
