Perspectives in Nature Conservation and Restoration for the 21st Century

In Conversation with Richard Hobbs

Between 2004 and 2014 Richard was Editor-in-Chief of the journal Restoration Ecology. During this time Richard had to grapple with some challenging issues. We are entering a period of rapid environmental change, which requires us to consider what it is we want to achieve from our conservation efforts.

* When should we be willing to accept that non-native species may be providing important ecosystem function?
* When should we still be aiming for a return to a historic state for an ecosystem?

When reflecting on these questions Richard developed a sense of why conservationists have varying views.
