Thematic Sections
Sections are organized around a theme rather than a region. Similar to chapters, sections are run by a volunteer board and provide SER members with the opportunity to engage and share knowledge on a specific topic related to the field of restoration ecology. Membership in our sections is free with all active SER memberships.


The International Network for Seed-based Restoration (INSR) links practitioners, scientists, community and government and industry who use seed in ecological restoration and rehabilitation. With an interactive web page and development of discussion forums between seed users around the world, the network is for everyone interested in making the most out of their native seeds. Special subgroups include: seed coatings and pelleting, seed dormancy, provenance, seed storage, precision seeding, germination-on-demand and many more are planned.

Established in October 2013, SER's Large-scale Ecosystem Restoration Section (LERS) is dedicated to:

  1. Advancing public education and enlightenment concerning large-scale ecosystem resources.
  2. Providing a forum for an interchange of ideas, approaches, lessons learned, and data developed relevant to planning, policy, science, and engineering of large-scale ecosystem restoration.
  3. Developing and encouraging large-scale ecosystem restoration as a discipline by supporting student education, curriculum development, and research.
  4. Encouraging and evaluating the educational, scientific, engineering, and technological development and advancement of all branches of large-scale ecosystem restoration and practice.
