Abstract: Effective ecosystem restoration decision making requires analysis of the costs and benefits of alternative actions. The outcomes of restoration actions are often uncertain – and the models used to assess the outcomes are equally uncertain – due to incomplete ecological knowledge and other factors, such as limited data. These uncertainties can impose some risk. This technical note provides an overview of two quantitative methods for assessing risk associated with restoration decisions, sensitivity, and uncertainty analysis. An example of these methods is provided for a Louisiana coastal wetland restoration study.
