We created a database using three main sources: Restoration Ecology journal (researchers), Twitter and Altmetric Attention (communicators) and the SER’s databases (practitioners). First, we studied whether gender bias existed among people leading ecosystem restoration in the three dimensions. Second, we analyzed factors that could influence gender bias (year, target ecosystem and socioeconomic country development). Third, we analyzed whether the impact of scientific knowledge in society depends on the scientific team’s gender. Our results indicate that men were primary leaders in the three studied dimensions. This leadership was greater in more advanced career stages. There seems to be a trend over time towards equality in research, but gender inequality is still present in most types of ecosystems. Gender bias persisted in restoration science and practice in all countries, with women leading more projects in more developed countries. The impact of scientific knowledge was independent of th
