Led by Institute Professor, Susan Baker, a new group has been formed, bringing together those working on ecological restoration across Cardiff University from a range of disciplines.

The group will work to improve collaboration on restoration ecology research, develop new interdisciplinary projects and address the lack of research papers on ecological restoration from a governance or political science perspective. As a first step a reading group has been established, to review existing literature, Currently, the group is reading Motivations for the restoration of ecosystems, Andre F. Clewell and James Aronson (2006).
