Rewilding: challenges and opportunities for biodiversity conservation
In this Biodiversity theme meeting we will discuss rewilding as a conservation approach in Sweden and Europe. We will learn and discuss what rewilding is and what it is not. In particular, we will explore how rewilding as a concept can inspire future research on biodiversity conservation within BECC.
