    Ecological restoration, the process of repairing sites in nature whose biological communities (that is, interacting groups of various species in a common location) and ecosystems have been degraded or destroyed. In many ecosystems, humans have altered local native populations of plants and animals, introduced invasive species, converted natural communities to extractive use (such as.

    Combining ecosystem function with human needs is the emphasis of ecological engineering (or its synonym ecotechnology), which is defined as ‘the design of human society with its natural environment for the benefit of both’ (Mitsch and Jørgensen, ; Mitsch, ).Ecotechnology involves several approaches or applications to the designing of landscapes, ranging from constructing new. Restoration Ecology Journal, Restoration Ecology. Restoration Ecology, the Society’s bi-monthly scientific and technical peer-reviewed journal, fosters the exchange of ideas among the many disciplines involved in the process of ecological restoration and includes original papers describing experimental, observational and theoretical studies spanning both the natural and social sciences.

New and updated coverage of ecological engineering by pioneers of the field Written by the founding and leading authorities in the field, Ecological Engineering and Ecosystem Restoration provides a firm grounding in the fundamentals, theory, and latest techniques for using ecological science to solve environmental by: This book is written by two distinguished optimists, and starts out with a very positive sentence “we are now in a position to make a substantial contribution to the ‘greening’ of the planet through ecological engineering and ecosystem restoration”.

To this, even the most dismal pessimist can surely subscribe. The development of ecological engineering was given strong impetus in the last decade with a textbook, the journal Ecological Engineering and two professional ecological engineering societies.

The journal is meant for ecologists who, because of their research interests or occupation, are involved in designing, monitoring, or restoring ecosystems, and can serve as a bridge between ecologists and engineers.

This text is intended as a graduate level introduction to the new field of ecological engineering. It is really a book about ecosystems and how they can be engineered to solve various environmental problems.

The Earth’s biosphere contains a tremen-dous variety of existing ecosystems, and ecosystems that never existed before are. Ecosystem health is a desired endpoint of environmental management and should be a primary design goal for ecological engineering.

This paper describes ecosystem health as a comprehensive, multiscale, measure of system vigor, organization and tem health is thus closely linked to the idea of sustainability, which implies the ability of the system to maintain its.

In their book Ecological Engineering and Ecosystem Restoration (Mitsch and Jørgensen ), the 14 principles were expanded to 19 principles. The idea behind these ecological engineering principles is that all ecotechnological project — it means all projects that use engineering and management of ecosystems should be based on these by: Engineering Ecological Engineering.

William Mitsch, born Ma in Wheeling, West Virginia USA, is an ecosystem ecologist and ecological engineer who was co-laureate of the Stockholm Water Prize in August as a result of a career in wetland ecology and restoration, ecological engineering, and ecological modelling.

Course Content: Ecological engineering is defined as “the design of sustainable ecosystems that integrate human society with its natural environment for the benefit of both.” It combines natural and applied sciences, especially systems ecology, with the discipline of engineering to educate professionals on how to design, construct and manage ecosystems and to develop sustainable eco.

Since prediction is limited, engineering epistemology requires building improvement based on design and test.
