Forest restoration e-learning modules
BGCI has created a suite of e-learning modules on restoring forests. There are three modules in the series, which explore planning forest restoration and how to select and source appropriate native species for restoration.
- Module 1: Planning forest restoration
- Module 2: Species selection for forest restoration
- Module 3 - Part 1: Sourcing material for forest restoration
- Module 3 - Part 2: Seed collection methods and post-harvest handling
This module covers what forest restoration is, how to plan a forest restoration project and what resources are available to help you do this.
This module covers the benefits of using native species, resources available to select appropriate native species and the different restoration approaches which can be implemented.
This module explores the different organisations which can be used to source material for forest restoration projects. The benefits of collecting your own material and how to maximise its genetic diversity are also discussed.
This module explores seed collection methods, associated material that should be collected alongside seed and post-harvest handling.
BGCI would like to thank the Convention on Biological Diversity and The Japan Biodiversity Fund for supporting the development of these learning modules.
