Identifying mechanisms for successful ecological restoration with salvaged topsoil in coastal sage scrub communities

Mia Maltz & Katharina Schmid
Although above-ground metrics remain the standard, restoring functional ecosystems should promote both above- and belowground biotic communities. Restoration using salvaged soil — removal and translocation of topsoil from areas planned for development, with subsequent deposition at degraded sites — is an alternative to traditional methods. Salvaged soil contains both seed and spore banks, which may holistically augment restoration. Salvaged soil methods may reduce non-native germination by burying non-native seeds, increase native diversity by adding native...
