Forest Restoration in Landscapes – Beyond Planting Trees (2005), edited by Mansourian et al, shows how the importance of restoration continues to grow, and integrates the restoration of forest functions into landscape conservation plans.

Restoration of Boreal and Temperate Forests (2004), edited by Stanturf and Madsen, summarizes the breadth of restoration protocols at both the local and regional scale and documents and compares over 20 case studies of forest restoration projects in a geographically diverse range of temperate and boreal zones.

Rehabilitation and Restoration of Degraded Forests (2003), by Lamb and Gilmour, present approaches to restoring and rehabilitating the vast areas of degraded, fragmented and modified forests which cover much of the world.

Restoring the Urban Forest Ecosytem (2001), University of Florida IFAS, explains the basic ecological principles for the urban forest’s water, soil, plant and animal communities. Solutions, strategies, examples, and additional resources are presented to help make urban forest restoration projects successful.

Global Forest Restoration: A Review (1999), Conservation Biology Institute, analysis of the concept of forest restoration, as well as individual reviews of the various ecological, technical, and socio-political factors relevant to the WWF Global 200 major habitat types.

Environmental Forest Science (1999) presents the full text volume of the IUFRO (International Union of Forestry Research Organizations) Conference on Environmental Forest Science which was held in Kyoto, Japan on 19-23 October 1998.

Impacts of Global Change on Australian Temperate Forests (1999), by Howden and Gorman, describes knowledge about the global change impacts on forest systems and is part of a broader study addressing global change impacts on a range of managed ecosystems in Australia.

The Once and Future Forest: A Guide to Forest Restoration Strategies (1998), by Sauer, is a guidebook for restoring and managing natural landscapes focusing on remnant forest systems, it describes methods of restoring and linking forest fragments to recreate a whole landscape fabric.
