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.

Conservation of carnivorous plants in the age of extinction

Adam T. Cross et al., Global Ecology and Conservation, Volume 24, 2020. "As the number of vulnerable, endangered and extinct carnivorous plant species continues to grow, despite significant conservation efforts in many regions and greater awareness of their ecological requirements, it is clear that a paradigm shift is required in our approach to the preservation of this unique group of plants in order to achieve long-term conservation successes."

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."
