Wetlands harbor high biodiversity and provide important ecosystem services, including nutrient retention and carbon sequestration. However, many wetlands are severely degraded through eutrophication. To improve wetland quality and services, the process of terrestrialisation, with its characteristic successional vegetation stages, needs to be restarted. This project studies the factors that regulate or inhibit the rate of terrestrialisation and the resulting biodiversity.
