"The convergence of popular and technical literature reinforces the impression that a paradigm shift in conservation/restoration is underway. Novel Ecosystems provides an entry to this novel world view."  (Ecological Management & Restoration, 17 September 2014)

"Overall, this is a timely book that thoroughly addresses a critical issue in the management of ecosystems in a dynamically changing world. Its strength lies in its treatment of decision making processes and its real?]world illustrations through case studies."  (Frontiers of Biogeography, 1 November 2013)

"In conclusion, I recommend this book to all researchers and practitioners working on man-made ecosystems."  (Basic and Applied Ecology, 1 October 2013)

"If this dialogue takes place, with the inclusion of ''classic,'' ''traditional,'' and ''orthodox'' restoration ecology, at least with regards historical knowledge (a paradigm change rather than a paradigm shift), as well as the issues concerning novel ecosystems, then this provocative book will remain an interesting and stimulating standard work for a long time."  (Restoration Ecology, 1 July 2013)

"Summing Up: Recommended. All academic and professional audiences."  (Choice, 1 October 2013)

"Although the authors' new terminology does not seem a step forward, Novel Ecosystemsprovides relevant and stimulating ideas for discussion and integration into conservation and restoration methods, strategies, and goals."  (Science, 2 August 2013)
