Building synergies to leverage the power
of ecological restoration

About the EcoHealth Network

We live in a world of possibilities. Ecological restoration projects exist worldwide in which people are doing heroic work to bring ecosystems back to health. But there is little connection among these sites. The EcoHealth Network is changing that. We work at the nexus of soil health, human health, and ecological restoration, where there are answers to some of the most urgent crises of our time.

Compromised Ecosystem Services From Urban Aerial Microbiomes: A Review of Impacts on Human Immune Function

Emily J Flies et al., Compromised Ecosystem Services From Urban Aerial Microbiomes: A Review of Impacts on Human Immune Function, Frontiers in Ecology and Evolution, Vol.8, 2020. "Exposure to biodiverse, airborne microbial communities (aerobiomes) contributes to the development of healthy human-immune function. This overlooked but potentially powerful ecosystem service is akin to nature’s provision of traditional medicines and pharmaceutical compounds."
