[Extract] This chapter will argue that restoration science has proven far better at solving the problems of 'how' to restore various sorts of degraded land than at addressing the problem of "what" to restore. The establishment and maintenance of vegetation on degraded sites and the use of land preparation techniques, cove rand nurse crops and the management of natural succession processes are all standard tools of foresters and watershed and range managers. There is considerable literature on how to manage and restore landscapes and excellent reviews are provided by Mansourian et al. (2005), Perrow and Davy (2002) and many others. Current thinking of issues of landscape approaches are reviewed by Lafortezza et al. (2008). The literature on determining the 'how' of landscape scale interventions is less rich.
