Dr. Falk Interviewed in The Irish Times on Restoration Ecology

Monday, December 3, 2018

Dr. Donald Falk was recently interviewed for an in-depth piece on ecosystem restoration and climate change for The Irish Times:

"'Climate change is a game-changer for ecological restoration. We are having to restore into a world that does not yet exist,' according to leading restoration scientist Donald Falk.

Challenging as that prospect is, Falk is obviously energised by the idea that a reconfigured restoration strategy could itself play a key role in mitigating climate change; the world has started to realise that restored ecosystems often have massive potential for pulling greenhouse gases out of the atmosphere."

The article examines the broad strategies needed to address climate change and what restoration ecology looks like in the context of the global climate change that the planet is facing. Read it here.
