English term or phrase:perceived desirability of which
Even with active restoration measures, recovery may progress to some state different from the original ecosystem. This may be a broadly similar state (e.g., coral dominated but with different dominant species) in which case “rehabilitation” (improvement of the ecosystem’s function and structure) has been achieved, but not full restoration. Alternatively, the active restoration may disappoint and lead to a rather different ecosystem state (“replacement” system), the ///perceived desirability of which/// will depend on the goals of the restoration intervention. Deciding whether active measures are needed and what these should be is perhaps the hardest issue to resolve. We will try to give some guidance as to how to approach this issue in the following few sections.
