Talking Novel Ecosystems with the ASLA Ecology & Restoration PPN
A novel ecosystem has been defined by Richard Hobbs as "an ecosystem that consists of new combinations of species that have not previously coexisted, and/or new configurations of environmental factors such as changed climate or altered soil properties." The basic premise that such ecosystems exist seems straightforward, yet has been highly contentious and marks a significant shift in perspective.  This webinar panel brings together designers and ecologists to unravel the nuances of "novel ecosystems" as a conceptual framework, and the implications for work in restoration, conservation, and design.

Design Tools for Climate Smart Riparian Restoration
Climate change projections suggest future climates will be different than the past, and that project design strategies may need to adapt to remain successful. Climate smart ecological restoration is the process of enhancing ecological function of degraded or destroyed areas in a manner that makes them more resilient to the consequences of climate change. Point Blue will present new strategies and tools from their Climate-Smart Restoration Toolkit to help landscape architects increase project success and resilience in a changing climate. These strategies can be applied to any project and support planning and design from developing project goals to selecting appropriate plant species.
