Ecological Restoration

Restoration ecology is the scientific study supporting the practice of ecological restoration , which is the practice of renewing and restoring degraded, damaged, or destroyed ecosystems and habitats in the environment by active human intervention and action.

Habitat Restoration

Habitat Restoration is accomplished through management, protection, and reestablishment of plants by returning abiotic factors to historical levels.
