Reconciling Ecosystem Rehabilitation and Service Reliability

Michel J. G. van Eeten and Emery Roe

  • A new framework for reconciling a major environmental paradox which has hitherto been conceived largely intractable to policy intervention
  • A new framework for matching the variety of ecosystems to their most effective management practices
  • The first research to identify new development already underway but not yet recognized in the relevant literatures
  • The first comparative studies of the major US ecosystem restoration efforts in the San Francisco Bay Delta, Columbia River Basin and the Everglades
  • The first study that links the major US efforts to wider "green" land use planning issues by including an international case study - the Green Heart of the Netherlands
  • Primary research in the form of first-hand interviews with key decision-makers in the three major US ecosystem restoration initiatives
