Ecosystem rehabilitation


The process of assisting the recovery of an ecosystem that has been degraded, damaged or destroyed through the reparation of ecosystem processes, productivity and services, but without re-establishing the pre-existing species composition and structure. For example, inter-planting trees on cropland using naturalized species to improve soil quality.
