Abstract: The mechanisms and processes of degradation and rehabilitation are analysed. The distinction is made between restoration and rehabilitation at the landscape level and the implications for whole rangeland ecosystems are considered. The recovery phase is considered and the keys to successful recovery including technical interventions are analysed. A set of guiding principles for artificial rangeland improvement (re-seeding) is presented.
Keywords: definitions; restoration ecology; re-seeding; re-vegetation; site selection; economics; costeffectiveness; constraints to large-scale rehabilitation; guiding principles
