Grassland Restoration to Conserve Landscape-level Biodiversity: A Synthesis of Early Results from a Large-Scale Project

Lengyel, S. et al.

Publication Date:

Grassland restoration was generally successful in accelerating secondary succession towards alkali steppes and loess grasslands. However, further management is necessary to counter the homogenizing effects of litter accumulation, to reduce perennial weeds and to enhance the colonization of target species. Our project provides useful practical insights into grassland restoration and in applying restoration at a number of sites within a larger area to conserve biodiversity at the landscape scale.
