In response to the inherent evolution of ecological restoration theory and practice towards a landscape-oriented perspective, the expert teams evolved in their scope as well. Since 2006 they are arranged according to physical-geographical regions (Fig. 8). 2 Forest Landscape Restoration in the Netherlands... 31 Fig. 8 Physical-geographical regions in the Netherlands. Red = Calcareous hills, Khaki = Pleistocene sands area, Yellow = Coastal dune area, Purple = Peat land area, Blue = Riverine area, Green = Sea clay area Moreover, two additional tasks for the teams were added: knowledge development to support the maintenance of nature quality of Natura 2000 sites (European Commission 2002) and knowledge development for ecological restoration on former agricultural lands.

1 The Importance of Multi-stakeholder Involvement Multi-stakeholder involvement has been recognized as an important factor for success regarding sustainable landscape management in the Netherlands (de Haas et al. 1999). Multi-stakeholder decision-making helps define feasible biodiversity goals (Opdam et al. 2006). Integration of scientific knowledge with visions, information and solutions proposed by local and regional stakeholders also helps to direct the research process and enhances the chances of successful implementation of its outcome (Jongman and Padovani 2006).
