Peter Thomas, British Ecological Society Bulletin
"... the first published work that provides a systematic combination of geological and ecological approaches to assessing the relevance of landsliding to environmental management. The coverage is virtually worldwide. Diagrams, maps, and photographs are numerous, excellent, and highly relevant. The book is well documented with an impressive 43-page bibliography ... Highly recommended."
J. D. Ives, Choice
"The book is suitable reference material for researchers, university students, land managers and related policy needs. It is readable and well-illustrated ... The book contains an appropriate mix of knowledge on landslide ecology and its application and provides a solid background for those interested in landscape dynamics."
New Zealand Ecological Society Newsletter
"Ably summarizing the growing body of literature on the ecological consequences of landslides, this book provides a useful framework for the promotion of ecological tools in predicting, stabilizing and restoring biodiversity to landslide scars at both local and landscape scales. Recognizing the role that these processes play in providing more holistic solutions to the problem of unstable slopes, the authors present ecological approaches as useful, economical and resilient supplements to landslide management. The book will therefore find readers not only amongst researchers and students, but also amongst land managers and rehabilitation specialists."
