Track: Environmental Management
Authors: Yi-Chin Fang
Ecological restoration conducted on a landscape scale provides an opportunity to better understand the influence of environmental variation on the establishment of plant communities. A restoration study site was established with different habitats, herbicide use and species composition. Spatial analyst ArcTool was used to determine the solar radiation and slope from NED data. Multivariate analyses were run to determine relationships among environmental factors, and native plant establishment.
