Landmark study in Seychelles shows hope for restoring native plant communities
A new study carried out in Seychelles and published in the prestigious scientific journal Nature on Monday has shown that clearing areas of alien species increases the natural pollination among the native plants that remain. The increased productivity of native plants recorded by the researchers is an indicator that natural ecosystems of native and endemic plants can be restored, a promising implication for the future of biodiversity conservation.
