Based on the theories of natural succession and nucleation techniques, the Nucleario project is a geoengineering concept for forest restoration in degraded areas. Nucleario was designed to be 100 percent biodegradable and perform multiple functions, such as protection from the ants, water accumulation, shade for the seedlings and crowning of the invasive species. With the growth of the Nucleario unit, the forest fragments begin to interconnect and exchange genetic material, moving toward a dynamic balance independent of human action.
