*Applications in Ecological Engineering
Ecological engineering involves the design, construction and management of ecosystems that have value to both humans and the environment. It is a rapidly developing discipline that provides a promising technology to solve environmental problems. Ecological Engineering covers the basic theory of ecological engineering as well as the application of these principles in environmental management. Based on content from the well-respected Encyclopedia of Ecology (published in 2008), this volume has an international focus and covers a range of ecosystems; The authors examine the implications of ecological engineering and the goals of restoring ecosystems that have been substantially disturbed by human activity and developing new sustainable ecosystems.
