A new, free resource called Restoration Evidence has been developed by the Endangered Landscapes Programme of the Cambridge Conservation Initiative that aims to make ecological restoration more effective by providing evidence about the effectiveness of specific restoration actions.
The searchable website contains summaries of scientific research on the effects of actions to restore habitats, in order to support decision making. Actions are categorized by the target habitat or species.
Summaries of evidence are available for the ecological restoration of forests, peatland vegetation, shrublands and heathlands, and farmland, and for restoration actions aimed at enhancing populations of birds, amphibians, bees, bats and primates.
