Restoration Ecology Lab
The Restoration Ecology Lab focuses on increasing knowledge about ecological processes and their application to the restoration of degraded ecosystems. Specific areas of focus include: effects of abiotic and biotic disturbances on vegetation, the efficacy and ecological impacts of restoration treatments, and the conceptual basis for ecological restoration. These topics are explored at landscape, community, population, and organism scales, through field experiments, retrospective studies, and meta-analyses. We are particularly interested in projects that contribute both to basic knowledge of plant and restoration ecology and provide managers with timely information about the ecological effects of management activities.
