Call for Abstracts
Submission Deadline: Friday, January 30, 2009
The primary focus of NCER 09 is to share lessons-learned from the conduct of large-scale and small-scale ecosystem restoration programs both in the U.S. and internationally. Technical sessions will focus on six primary themes:
● Ecosystem Restoration at the Watershed Scale
● New Planning Approaches to Achieve Ecosystem Restoration
● Science and Engineering Integration
● Linking Monitoring Results with Management Decision-making
● Urban Ecosystem Restoration
● Ecosystem Goods and Services
CLICK HERE to view a PDF of detailed subtopics within each program theme.
All individuals interested in ecosystem restoration are invited to submit an abstract for oral or poster presentation. Oral and poster presentations will be selected from abstract submissions, and abstracts from all presentations will be included in the conference book of abstracts. The abstract book will ONLY BE PUBLISHED ONLINE this year as we strive to make NCER as environmentally conscious as possible.
