Conservation Evidence

Conservation Evidence


The aim of the Conservation Evidence project is to sum up the scientific results of the effects of wetland plant management methods for conservation purposes. What measures can we take to conserve plants or restore wetland vegetation? Which management actions/methods work? Which actions/methods have never been tested out scientifically? The summaries we write need to be accessible to a wide range of users, particularly wetland managers, researchers, and the general public. We hope that they will be systematically used to make conservation decisions based on scientific results.

This project at the Tour du Valat is part of a broader project, Conservation Evidence, which is based at the University of Cambridge. The team aims to produce summaries of evidence for all kinds of species and habitats. The summaries currently available concern the conservation of amphibians, bats, birds, and forests, and sustainable agriculture in Mediterranean regions.


Actions and methodology

There are five principal steps for producing the synopsis of wetland conservation:


Our summaries of “what works” for wetland conservation will be available for free on the Conservation Evidence page [1]. Although they are written in English, there is a tool on the site for translations into French!
