12 Restoration and rehabilitation of ecosystems


Jörg Luster (CH),
Cecilia Akselsson (SE)

Donnerstag, 10:00-16:30, H19

This session deals with restoration or recovery of ecosystems and ecosystem functions. Examples are the restoration of wetlands and riparian zones, the recovery of forests following the reduction of atmospheric deposition, or management practices directed to mitigate the effects of acidification, nitrogen saturation or pollution with inorganic or organic contaminants. Of particular interest is the evaluation of indicators that allow to assess the degree to which ecosystem functions have recovered or been restored. In order to achieve a broad exchange of experiences and ideas, we welcome reports on observational, experimental or modeling studies in any ecosystem within the focus of the conference.
