Conservation Evidence: a tool to provide evidence to improve practice
Accessing and synthesising the evidence relating to particular restoration action can be difficult and time consuming. Conservation Evidence is a free resource that has been designed to facilitate evidence-based conservation, by providing summaries of the evidence for a wide range of actions. The searchable website contains summaries of scientific research on the effects of actions to restore and conserve species and habitats, in order to support decision making.
Search or browse the Conservation Evidence database of the evidence for the effectiveness of conservation actions here.
Conservation Evidence currently includes summaries of the evidence for the ecological restoration of forests, peatland vegetation, shrublands and heathlands, and farmland, and also restoration actions aimed at enhancing populations of birds, amphibians, bees and bats. Actions are categorized by the target habitat or species and free pdfs of the synopses of this evidence are available to download here.
The ELP has partnered with Conservation Evidence as an Evidence Champion and is committed to using and generating scientific evidence in the projects that we fund.
