"Ecological Restoration was instrumental in awakening restoration in North America, and prospers as an invaluable publication for those whose approach to restoring ecosystems includes ecology, culture and all that goes into making a project successful."—Eric Higgs, author of "Nature By Design"
"Ecological Restoration brings together the two essential components of restoration: science and community. This journal speaks to people and the process of making restoration happen as well as the monitoring and research that underpin it."—Leslie Sauer, author of "The Once and Future Forest"

We are a peer-reviewed journal and every submission receives a careful evaluation from knowledgeable scientists or practitioners of restoration. As our field grows and the number of submissions rises, we have an urgent need for more manuscript reviewers. We particularly need specialists in grassland ecology, coastal ecology, and soil processes, but welcome new partners from any area of restoration.
