Call for Abstracts
Join us at NCER '11 for five days of
presentations in eight program tracks, workshops, poster sessions, field
trips and coffee-house discussions dedicated to current topics in
ecosystem restoration. We’ll explore the roles of policy, planning,
science and management in establishing goals and performance
expectations for achieving successful and sustainable ecosystem
All individuals working in ecosystem restoration are invited to submit
abstracts describing their efforts, science, projects and results. Oral
and poster presentations will be selected from abstract submissions, and
abstracts from all presentations will be published online in the
conference book of abstracts. Poster presentations will be divided into
two sessions and formal poster sessions will be held for each grouping
to allow maximum time for discussion with individual authors.
Below is a detailed list of topics. You will be asked to identify which
topic is most applicable to your work outlined in your abstract
submission when filling out the online form, so please take a moment to
review this list in advance and select a topic.
