The aim of this dissertation was to find out if certain plant combinations in the canopy of restoration plantings in Riccarton Bush were more effective nurse plants than other plant combinations and what were the characteristics that these plants had. Fifty plots in Riccarton Bush were analysed and it was found that Community Two, a Pittosporum tenuifolium-Coprosma robusta forest had a significantly larger number of seedlings (greater than 10 centimetres in height) than three other Communities…

Growth of native forest species planted on abandoned pasture land in Costa Rica
TLDR
In general, the growth rates of the species studied were high in comparison with results reported from other tree plantations in the tropics, and it is not prudent to draw final conclusions on the basis of these 3 year measurements.
Resistance and resilience in a directly regenerating rainforest: Nicaraguan trees of the Vochysiaceae after Hurricane Joan
TLDR
The regenerating Vochysia population is mostly seedlings and saplings, while that of Qualea is mostly adult trees, and both species are contrasting elements of the 'direct regeneration' which has been observed in this rainforest.
Afforestation trials with Prosopis chilensis (Mol.) Stuntz and Prosopis flexuosa D.C. in the Dry Chaco, Argentina
TLDR
The best time for either implantation alternative would be the end of the summer or beginning of fall, when climatic conditions increase the probability of seedling survival.
Presidential address: opportunities for ecological restoration
TLDR
Ecological restoration is a means of restoring biological diversity to depleted landscapes and, as a consequence, can increase the variety of ways in which people appreciate nature.
Towards a Conceptual Framework for Restoration Ecology
TLDR
This work stresses the importance of developing restoration methodologies that are applicable at the landscape scale, beyond nonquantitative generalities about size and connectivity, so that urgent large-scale restoration can be planned and implemented effectively.
