Abstract

Re-assemblage of plant communities on the restoration sites is a slow process, largely dependent on historic use of the sites prior to restoration, the amount of applied propagules, site management during early restoration stages, and speed of ontogenesis of the target species. Use of the MAVIS calculator of similarity scores between existing vegetation and standard plant communities as described in British NVC, showed the potential of measuring restoration progress. Most of the restoration sites and most of forming plant communities scored 50-60%, which is slightly indicative towards a good progress in community re-assemblage
