The main goal of restoration ecology is the reestablishment of:

a. natural patterns of water flow.

b. the vitality of a degraded ecosystem.

c. the historical corridors linking forest fragments.

d. the natural barriers to animal movement.

e. ecotourism.

Summary Introduction

Introduction:

Conservation biology is a field of science that emphasizes preservation and maintenance of biodiversity. The conservation biologist use systematics, population genetics, ecology, and behavior to protect habitats and the endangered species inhabiting those habitats. There are several practical applications of conservation theory and restoration ecology is one of them.

Explanation

Justification for the correct answer:

Option (b) says that the reestablishment of vitality of a degraded ecosystem is the main goal of restoration ecology. The restoration ecology supports the practice of restoring and renewing the damaged, degraded, and destroyed ecosystem. The ecosystems are the habitats of different species and they are destroyed by human actions and interventions. Hence, option (b) is correct.

Justification for the incorrect answers:

Option (a) says that the main goal of restoration ecology is the reestablishment of the natural patterns of water flow. The natural patterns of water flow are reestablished by using mixed-use conservation and not restoration. So, it is an incorrect option.

Option (c) says that the re-establishment of historical corridors linking forest fragments is the basic goal of the restoration ecology...
