Restoration Ecologist, Leland Werden

About Leland Werden

I am a restoration ecologist who focuses on developing tools to conserve and restore degraded forests. My work has spanned ecosystems from the temperate forests of the Northeastern United States to the tropical wet and dry forests of Costa Rica, Hawaii, and Mexico. I am currently a restoration ecologist in the Crowther Lab at ETH Zürich, where I develop collaborative projects that aim to improve the understanding of global restoration outcomes. I also serve as the chief scientific advisor for the Plant-for-the-Planet Foundation. I joined Wildhub to network with conservation professionals and look for collaborators for ongoing projects.

Hi, Leland. Is the survey closed? I'd love to see the results if you can share them!

Hi Lena! We've been getting some great responses and we've decided to keep it open for most of the year. 

For now here's a map of the responses thus far.
