Ecological restoration practitioners are growing increasingly aware of the importance of acknowledging multiple trophic levels and employing community ecology theories into project goals and design. In this symposium, we seek to examine the influence of invertebrates such as pollinators, beneficial insects, prey and pests, and to identify challenges and solutions in considering invertebrates in restorative efforts in terrestrial and aquatic systems.
This symposium is co-hosted by the University of Washington Botanic Gardens and the Northwest Chapter of the Society for Ecological Restoration to provide continuing education for restoration ecology practitioners.
Why should you attend? Come to ask questions, to hear your colleagues’ stories of their successes and challenges, and to learn about cutting-edge approaches being used to improve restoration project success.
