English term or phrase: mitigation compliance
Finally, comes the question of whether the site is “recruitment limited”, that is, does it lack an adequate supply of coral larvae? Even on healthy reefs, some areas may receive few coral and other invertebrate larvae in the currents and recover much more slowly from disturbances than those areas with a better supply. In such cases, using transplants to establish a viable local coral population may greatly accelerate recovery. However, on healthy reefs with a good natural supply of larvae, (particularly in the Indo-Pacific) there is likely to be little ecological need for active restoration. Despite this, there may be other drivers pushing active restoration, such as ///mitigation compliance,/// a political need for a restoration effort to be attempted (e.g. public outcry, concern, or insistence that an environmental injustice is corrected), or just human impatience with the rate of natural recovery. In such cases, given the large costs, the money made available for active restoration could probably be better spent on prevention of human impacts or on passive restoration measures
