“Ecological restoration is the process of assisting the recovery of an ecosystem that has been degraded, damaged, or destroyed. Restoration ecology is the science upon which the practice of ecological restoration is based. Restoration ecology ideally provides clear concepts, models, methodologies and tools for practitioners in support of their practice”  – Society for Ecological Restoration International, 2005.
