Rewilding: challenges and opportunities for biodiversity conservation

stone wall with ivy
Theme meeting
Rewilding as a concept in nature conservation emerged in around the turn of the decade, with somewhat different foci in North America and Europe. In essence, rewilding is a concept that emphasises the restoration of ecosystem complexity, including both ecosystem structure and trophic networks, and natural disturbance regimes. However, rewilding as a conservation strategy has also been criticized and debated.

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.
