ecosystems or rewilding, what is the best approach for restoring an ecosystem disturbed by human activities?

The issue is the subject of much debate among scientists and environmentalists. A recent study published in the journal Biological Conservation in February 2024 provides some answers.

In this interview, the doctoral student at IMBE (IUT Avignon) Clémentine Mutillod explains this research.
