dc.identifier.citationHardwick, K. and Fiedler, P. and Lee, L. and Pavlik, B. and Hobbs, R. and Aronson, J. and Bidartondo, M. et al. 2011. The Role of Botanic Gardens in the Science and Practice of Ecological Restoration. Conservation Biology. 25 (2): pp. 265-275.

Many of the skills and resources associated with botanic gardens and arboreta, including plant taxonomy, horticulture, and seed bank management, are fundamental to ecological restoration efforts, yet few of the world's botanic gardens are involved in the science or practice of restoration. Thus, we examined the potential role of botanic gardens in these emerging fields. We believe a reorientation of certain existing institutional strengths, such as plant-based research and knowledge transfer, would enable many more botanic gardens worldwide to provide effective science-based support to restoration efforts. We recommend botanic gardens widen research to include ecosystems as well as species, increase involvement in practical restoration projects and training practitioners, and serve as information hubs for data archiving and exchange.
