Abstract or Summary

Re-introduction of original plants into modified ecosystems requires some testing of the plant range originally present. This abstract and presentation looks at the theory behind why this should be pursued. Reintroduction of lost ecosystem in the urban environment creates a vehicle for local residents to become aware of the place/original ecosystem they live in. It connects the city landscape with important highly prized ecosystem remnants in the outlying area beyond the city boundaries..
