Abstract/Contents:Offers suggestions for hiring contractors for ecological restoration, stating that "ecological restoration work involves taking a site that's been altered by man, or somehow damaged, and returning it to a more natural state." Notes that "while some construction contractors have experience in ecological restoration projects, others are entirely new to this type of work. It requires a very different approach from typical landscape construction projects...Companies that have worked in this area understand the process that is involved, and they have some experience with some of the materials used in ecological restoration that aren't typically used in landscape construction projects."
