Assisted natural regeneration as a better alternative than active restoration in many contexts
Assisted natural forest regeneration to maximize carbon sequestration and support biodiversity is a better alternative than active restoration in many contexts. Identifying the specific contexts where assisted natural regeneration has a high likelihood of success is a fundamental step in restoration planning at regional and national scales. Traditional drawbacks associated with assisted natural regeneration, such as uncertainty over where assisted natural regeneration is feasible, can be effectively reduced using an approach based on scientific research and modeling methods.
