In 2010, Researchers at UC Berkeley (UCB) and the University of Connecticut partnered with the Natural Communities Coalition (NCC) and received a three-year grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) that focuses on restoring native communities invaded by exotic plants. The project funded by the grant was designed to lead to an increased understanding of the threshold dynamics of invasion and restoration so that management actions can be developed and selected with an understanding of ecological and economic constraints and trade-offs. One component of this effort was development of a web-based decision tool for determining and tracking restoration management actions. Although the USDA Grant formally ended at the close of 2013. The Natural Communities Coalition has continued to invest in development and refinement of web-based, habitat restoration decision support tool for land managers.
