Abstract

Restoring native habitat within agricultural fields offers a way to balance the provisioning of ecosystem services like soil retention with the conservation of native habitat in extremely simplified landscapes, while simultaneously promoting sustainable crop production. As a farming conservation practice, these in-field restorations should be able to reliably achieve target goals across a wide variety of landscapes and contexts. For the vegetation community these goals could include species diversity and consistent native cover, which may facilitate ecosystem service provisioning and invasion resistance in highly disturbed areas.
