2nd meeting: postponed - tbd
Understanding the mechanisms behind successful ecological restoration is critical to biodiversity conservation, especially with unprecedented rates of environmental change and biodiversity decline. Linking applied ecological restoration with theory of why species coexist provides a crucial bridge to predictive management across ecosystems and disciplines. This working group aims to (i) assess the utility of current theory across global restoration efforts, (ii) synthesize theory and practice into a generalizable framework transferable across contexts and (iii) develop novel theory incorporating global change factors.
