- Ecological restoration of species‐rich grasslands remains a priority for conservation of biodiversity. Torrez et al. (Applied Vegetation Science, this issue) determined if plant species recolonization of degraded nutrient‐poor grasslands could be increased by adding a local source of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungal (AMF) inoculum at different distances from intact remnant grasslands. They highlight the important role of below‐ground processes on restoration success.
