1993) provided a list of “vital ecosystem attributes” for a quantitative evaluation of whole ecosystem structure, composition, and functional complexity over time, based on measures of current and potential future vegetation structure, faunal relationships, soil condition, water and nutrient availability, and microsymbiont efficiency. In addition, Aronson and LeFloc’h (1996) proposed 16 “vital landscape attributes” for monitoring the success of restoration using a landscape perspective. Bradshaw (1983) proposed general treatments to overcome physical, nutritional, and toxicity problems that prevent satisfactory vegetation growth on mined land.
