Restoration of ecosystem services and biodiversity: conflicts and opportunities.
Ecological restoration is becoming regarded as a major strategy for increasing the provision of ecosystem services as well as reversing biodiversity losses. Here, we show that restoration projectsExpand
Biodiversity and Resilience of Ecosystem Functions.
Accelerating rates of environmental change and the continued loss of global biodiversity threaten functions and services delivered by ecosystems. Much ecosystem monitoring and management is focusedExpand
Plant traits as predictors of performance in ecological restoration
Summary 1. There are few studies of the performance of species in restored vegetation communities. Here we report the results of a meta-analysis of 25 experiments concerned with species-richExpand
Creating woodland islets to reconcile ecological restoration, conservation, and agricultural land use
Restoration initiatives seek to address widespread deforestation and forest degradation, but face substantial problems. “Passive restoration”, whereby abandoned agricultural land undergoes secondaryExpand
Carbon pools recover more quickly than plant biodiversity in tropical secondary forests
Although increasing efforts are being made to restore tropical forests, little information is available regarding the time scales required for carbon and plant biodiversity to recover to the valuesExpand
The impacts of non-native species on UK biodiversity and the effectiveness of control.
1. The introduction of non-native species continues to cause ecological concern globally, but there have been no published reviews of their effects in the UK. Impacts in the UK are thereforeExpand
