Ecological Management and Restoration
The proper way to cite an article from an online database in APA style is:

Author (year). Article title. Journal Title. Volume number (issue number), pages. Retrieved [date] from [database name].

Incorrect. You selected:
Done, T., Ellison, J., & Finlayson, M. (2004). Ecological management & restoration. Coastal & Marine, 5(3), 2. Retrieved July 20, 2006 from the Academic Search Premier database.

The article title and journal title are reversed, and the page number is incorrect. Picky? A reader wanting the original article would struggle to find the non-existent journal, Coastal & Marine.
