Vegetation Management for Restored Ecosystems

Restored and degraded ecosystems may take many years to recover. During that time, they need ongoing management. Techniques used in two broad categories of management strategies for restorations, re-establishing natural disturbances, and controlling invasive species, will be presented. This course covers disturbances and introduced species as management priorities, non-chemical management techniques, vegetation management with herbicides, and long-term management of prairies, forests, and wetlands.
