Published: 14 Aug 2009

Introduction: This 'virtual issue' of EMR brings together previously published content and marks the journal's 10th Anniversary. Content selection is based on the goal of keeping readers informed about the latest thinking and innovations in restoration science and practice. While the focus of the journal has been on the Australasian region, many of the articles have wider interest and application. This reflects the common issues being addressed by restoration practitioners and scientists across the globe.
