'What excuse can any ecologist have for not reading a book about long term ecological monitoring by Lidenmayer and Likens? This book should be read not only by all field ecologists but also policy makers who administer and fund monitoring programmes.' John Hopkins, Bulletin of the British Ecological Society 'The book provides an essential tool for understanding, protecting and preserving the earth's ecosystems.' Ecosystem Marketplace 'Effective Ecological Monitoring offers a well-written analysis of issues facing ecological monitoring programs. Its call to action for improving monitoring programs clearly outlines key issues yet to be resolved and can clearly serve as the foundation for future exploration. It is sure to resonate not only with scientists but also with policymakers, academics and ecosystem service professionals who can use its suggestions to improve existing monitoring programs and implement new ones.' Ecosystem Marketplace 'Throughout the text is clear, succint and thoroughly referenced, with many exemplars in addition to the case studies. This book should be read not only by all field ecologists but also policy makers who administer and fund monitoring programmes.' British Ecological Society Bulletin 'This book may be small in size, but it is very big on ideas.' Choice '[...] this clearly written, practical book is a welcome resource [...] [The authors'] recommendations should encourage all of us to rethink approaches to ecological research... [The book] deserves to be widely read.' Stephen F. Siebert, University of Montana, in Economic Botany
