Meeting ideas discuss with the ecological ideas that consultant the 'assembly' of ecosystems. they give assistance on making plans which species may be restored first, after which which can be further during which order. This paintings explores the thoughts and theories in terms of meeting ideas.

In evaluating plant species performance on a restored site, for instance, percentage cover or flowering rates are commonly measured. For meaningful planning of future projects based on previous experience, however, it would be preferable to know why certain species did well and others failed. Such an approach is much more challenging, since the processes of germination, establishment, growth, and reproduction may depend on many abiotic and biotic factors, including microclimate, resources, safe sites, competitors, herbivores, pathogens, symbionts, genetic diversity, and population density.
