Using assisted colonisation to conserve biodiversity and restore ecosystem function under climate change

Using assisted colonisation to conserve biodiversity and restore ecosystem function under climate... Highlights ► The assisted colonisation debate has primarily focused on persistence of species. ► A complementary motivation is to relocate species to restore ecosystem processes. ► We assess benefits and risks of ‘push’ (species) versus ‘pull’ (ecosystem) options. ► Ecological function options in assisted colonisation have conservation benefits. ► Assisted colonisation to restore ecological function is a key adaptation strategy. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Biological Conservation Elsevier

Abstract

Highlights ► The assisted colonisation debate has primarily focused on persistence of species. ► A complementary motivation is to relocate species to restore ecosystem processes. ► We assess benefits and risks of ‘push’ (species) versus ‘pull’ (ecosystem) options. ► Ecological function options in assisted colonisation have conservation benefits. ► Assisted colonisation to restore ecological function is a key adaptation strategy.
