Elk overgrazing in Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP), understood largely to be a consequence of wolf extirpation, poses not only a practical problem, but also several conceptual hurdles for park managers. The current RMNP ecosystem management plan addresses overgrazing by culling elk and...
A growing concern among restoration ecologists is inadvertently creating ecological traps, yet identifying ecological traps is difficult, particularly over a large region and for an entire suite of species. Here we use an example to show that restoration ecologists can evaluate the risk of...
The broadleaf marsh community in the post-restoration reaches of the Kissimmee River floodplain, Florida, US, has failed to achieve the expected dominance based on pre-disturbance conditions. We examined the hypothesis that seed dispersal is a limiting factor delaying the expansion of...
Following a prolonged drought, more than 7,250 ha of a large fen complex in Michiganâs Upper Peninsula burned in late summer of 2007. As part of fire-fighting efforts, over 48 km of bulldozed firebreaks were made in and around the peatland. In 2008, the State of Michigan restored over 32 km of...
Because the distances over which plants interact can be relatively short, the extent to which individuals interact with conspecific and heterospecific neighbors during the initial phases of grassland reconstruction may affect local species diversity and invasibility. To determine whether...
Invasive species frequently need to be controlled as part of efforts to reestablish native species on degraded sites. While the effectiveness of differing control methods are often reported, the impacts these methods have on the establishment of a native plant community are often unknown. To...
