    Description

    In September 1995, the Society for Ecological Restoration (SER) held its Annual Meeting at the University of Washington in Seattle. The meeting included two dozen conferences and several symposia and field trips dealing with various aspects of applying ecological restoration on both site-specific and landscape scales. More than a thousand scientists, educators, land managers, and others interested in issues relating to ecosystem-based management attended. The keynote speaker, Professor Daniel Botkin of George Mason University, exhorted the assembly to think of the natural landscape as an everchanging "motion picture" rather than as a single idyllic frame. Botkin (1990) and other prominent ecologists have warned that environmental concerns oRen focus on preserving a particular successional state (single frame), such as an old growth forest, rather than maintaining a dynamically functioning ecosystem or landscape with its many successional states.
