Society for Ecological Restoration (SER) is having its 10th European Conference on Ecological Restoration, held by the Department Ecology and Ecosystem Management, School of Life Sciences Weihenstephan - Technische Universität München, on 22-26 August 2016.
Past mismanagement and habitat degradation require counter measures, including habitat restoration and development of novel management approaches, not only in Europe but in Africa, the Americas, Asia, Australia. It is the concern of ecological restoration to make ecosystem repair and reconstruction technically feasible, successful in enhancing biodiversity and ecosystem function, and sustainable for society and economy in future generations. The conference will provide a friendly and exciting atmosphere to stimulate dialogue between restoration scientists, practitioners and policy makers, and to collaborate on the challenge of Best Practice in Restoration.
