Abstract:
Restoration Ecology has persisted for 25 years, but how long do restored ecosystems persist? Why do some restored ecosystems continue to accrue biodiversity and provide ecosystem services for decades or centuries while others are rapidly converted to alternative land uses? And how can we enhance the persistence of restored ecosystems? Answering these three big, temporal questions will amplify the lifetime benefits of ecological restoration.
