Land use: Restoration and rehabilitation

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter (peer-reviewed)


Agriculture is widely affected by forms of degradation that may be a direct result of the agricultural activity (including soil salinity, acidification and erosion) or otherwise caused (such as seawater inundation or pollution). Restoration is the act of restoring an area of habitat to its preperturbation state and is a term widely used in relation to natural systems, especially climax ecosystems such as forests. Rehabilitation involves some degree of restoration and is more common than restoration because the latter is difficult to achieve.
