Section VII Monitoring and Evaluation

Appendix 1 Selection of Identified Ecological Research Needs Relating to Forest Restoration 1. Long-Term Impacts of Restoration on Forest Ecosystems • Understanding of the long-term dynamics of different ecosystems to help develop realistic restoration targets • Understanding the ability of different forest ecosystems to recover quality over time and particularly about the likely speed of recovery and the length of time after degradation when a forest can still recover (linked, for instance, to survival time of buried seed populations), all of which are critical for determining whether natural regeneration will suffice or more active efforts are required • Measuring the sustainability of different restoration efforts, from ecological, social, and economic viewpoints • Identifying the opportunities for manipulating natural succession to favour desired outcomes • Understanding what could enhance natural succession after land abandonment 2. Climate Change and Adaptation • Implementation of field projects to test and if appropriate develop restoration’s role in mitigating as well as in building resilience to climate change 424 • Creative partnerships to analyse climate impacts and proposed restoration activities 3. Knowledge of Species • Understanding the role that individual species and microhabitats have in the restoration of ecosystem processes • Clarifying the potential of indigenous species in restoration where planting is necessary, including information on genetics, propagation techniques, the dynamics of ecological succession, the relationships between different species, the performance of indigenous species in plantation conditions, and the production of specific species in nurseries • Disseminating information on where to obtain seed of indigenous species, how to store the seeds, how to raise seedlings, and how to establish these seedlings in the field 4. Plantations • Developing user-friendly and locationspecific silvicultural guidelines for plantations with indigenous species to increase their adoption by local farmers • Gathering more information on the longterm dynamics of tree regeneration in plantations (to date, most studies have focussed on young plantations) • Enhancing understanding of the role and limitations of plantations in landscapes
