How do we restore degraded landscapes?
This is a central theme in the Brudvig Lab. To answer it, we take a plant community approach, coupling restoration and landscape ecology to 1) seek the basic underlying drivers of ecological communities across space and time and 2) apply this knoweldge to the field of restoration ecology.
