International Standards for the Practice of Ecological Restoration:
Yes, it's true. SER has just concluded preparing the first ever International Standards for the Practice of Ecological Restoration.

Importantly, Kingsley Dixon, Chair of INSR, is a co-author and native seed figures prominently in the document. The document is available here on the SER website.
