Reclamation & Restoration Ecology Minor

Reclamation and Restoration Ecology (RRE) undergraduate minor and graduate certificate are now available. RRE involves the use of basic and applied ecological concepts to rehabilitate and restore processes and functions to disturbed ecosystems.

Ecosystems of concern include:

  • Coal and bentonite mined lands

  • Altered wetlands

  • Degraded rivers and streams

  • Lands infested with exotic plants or noxious weeds

  • Eroding range and forest watersheds

  • Fragile arid and semi-arid rangelands

  • CBM product water disposal sites

  • Lands contaminated by toxic chemicals

Rehabilitation and restoration of disturbed ecosystems requires an understanding of the edaphic, biotic, hydrologic, geologic, and topographic factors comprising these ecosystems, including the complex interrelationships that support and perpetuate ecosystem function.
