Organization of Czech scientists to due to the fact that in this field have an excellent reputation in the world and regularly published in major professional journals. "I believe that not only the conference itself, but also the accompanying field trips to foreign participants can not only show the good results of research projects, but also their connection with practical ecological restoration. Just linking science with practice is the strength of this ecological discipline, which still did not fit into the wider public consciousness, "says ** Chairman of the Scientific Committee of the Conference Karel Dust **. "It is a pity that despite a series of expert studies and practical experience from the field naturalists with us yet caught on ecological restoration as an equivalent alternative to technical reclamation, eg. In abandoned mining areas. So not only do we waste the potential of these sites for nature conservation, but totally unnecessary state spending and corporate money, "added ** President of the Conference Organizing Committee Klara Řehounková **.
