Ecological Restoration gets a new look

Ecological Restoration

If you haven't seen it yet, take a look at the new cover for Ecological Restoration. We're excited by the opportunity to showcase beautiful, big photos on the cover. Like the one at the left, featuring Waterton Lakes National Park in Canada.

Full caption:
The application of demographic characteristics to select introduced populations for eradication is a simple yet meaningful step in restoration. Queenie Gray and colleagues ranked high-elevation lakes in Waterton Lakes National Park, Canada, for trout eradication using trout demographic characteristics that may render these populations more susceptible to depletion and ultimately extinction. This research provides insight into the characteristics of introduced salmonid populations and facilitates restoration by offering a science-based system of prioritizing impacted mountain lake ecosystems.
