Wildland restoration is a critical component in mitigating impacts from disturbances, invasive species and for promoting ecosystem resiliency. Scientists develop and modify tools, methods, and native plant materials used to restore damaged areas, study how restoration affects species and ecosystems,and develop novel approaches to monitor ecosystem changes in response to restoration. Research also includes developing technologies to ensure native seeds are available and appropriately adapted to the local environments.
