The Coral Reef Restoration Handbook is the first published volume devoted to the science of coral reef restoration. It offers a scientific, conceptual framework along with practical strategies for reef assessment and restoration. Contributors from a number of disciplines discuss engineering, geological, biological, and socioeconomic factors to create a text that is designed to guide scientists and resource managers in the decision-making process from initial assessment through conceptual restoration design, implementation, and monitoring. Relying on a selection of relevant case studies, this work builds on the lessons learned so as to encourage successful restoration efforts into the future.
