Restored Urban Streams: Case Studies in Science and Practice (The Science and Practice of Ecological Restoration Series)
By Ann L. Riley, June 2015, 240 pages, Island Press

Thirty years ago, the best thinking on urban stream management prescribed cement as the solution to flooding and other problems of people and flowing water forced into close proximity. Urban streams were perceived as little more than flood control devices designed to hurry water through cities and neighborhoods with scant thought for aesthetics or ecological considerations. Stream restoration pioneers like hydrologist Ann Riley thought differently. She and other like-minded field scientists imagined that by restoring ecological function and with careful management, streams and rivers could be a net benefit to cities instead of a net liability. In the intervening decades, she has spearheaded numerous urban stream restoration projects and put to rest the long-held misconception that degraded urban streams are beyond help.

Project Planning and Management for Ecological Restoration
By John Rieger, John Stanley, and Ray Traynor, 2014, 320 pages, Island Press

This book presents principles of sound planning and management that will greatly increase the likelihood that completed projects will meet stakeholder expectations. John Rieger, John Stanley, and Ray Traynor have been involved in restoration activities for over thirty years and were part of the small group of restorationists who recognized the need for a professional organization and in 1987 founded the Society for Ecological Restoration. This book comes out of their experiences practicing restoration, conducting research, and developing and refining new techniques and methods.

Urbanization, Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services: Challenges and Opportunities: A Global Assessment
By Thomas Elmqvist, et al., eds., 2013, 714 pages, Springer

Urbanization is a global phenomenon and the book emphasizes that this is not just a social-technological process. It is also a social-ecological process where cities are places for nature, and where cities also are dependent on, and have impacts on, the biosphere at different scales from local to global.

  State of the World 2013: Is Sustainability Still Possible?
The Worldwatch Institute, Erik Assadourian, April 2013, 464 pages, Island Press

Every day, we are presented with a range of “sustainable” products and activities—from “green” cleaning supplies to carbon offsets—but with so much labeled as “sustainable,” the term has become essentially sustainable, at best indicating a practice or product slightly less damaging than the conventional alternative. Is it time to abandon the concept altogether, or can we find an accurate way to measure sustainability? If so, how can we achieve it? And if not, how can we best prepare for the coming ecological decline?

Biodiversity of wetlands plants constitute an integral component of any aquatic/semi-aquatic ecosystem. They not only provide shelter but also serve as a source of food. Some of them may be Some weeds are a nuisance because they have thorns or prickles, have some chemicals that cause skin irritation or are hazardous if eaten. The rich and fascinating biomass in wetland constitutes a resource of great economic, cultural, ecological and several other significant values to human life. Numbers of plants of wetland are economically useful in providing medicinal and aesthetical values and may serve as good source of fertilizer.
