Recovery of forest plant communities in post-agricultural landscapes

  title={Recovery of forest plant communities in post-agricultural landscapes},
  author={Kathryn M. Flinn and Mark Vellend},
cal diversity via habitat loss and fragmentation cause intense concern among ecologists and conservationists. Despite the abundance and importance of restored habitats, however, much less attention has focused on how communities respond as landscapes recover from human disturbance. Understanding the long-term consequences of past land-use decisions is critical, not only to inform resource managers about existing communities, but also to predict the effects of future disturbance and… CONTINUE READING
