44th Annual Southern California Botanists Symposium Botany in the Hot Seat: Vegetation, Fire and Climate Change
Join the Southern California Botanists 44th Annual Southern California Botanists Symposium “Botany in the Hot Seat: Vegetation, Fire and Climate Change” on Saturday, November 3, 2018.
After the record-breaking WY2017 and the return to a drier WY2018, the suggested conference theme is "Persistent dry years leading to a new/drier normal and its implications?" Forest and aquatic ecosystems have adapted to changing climates before. How do we respond as researchers, ecosystem monitors, and managers?
The Film "WILDER THAN WILD: Fire, Forests and the Future" screening will occur Monday, May 21st at the Goldman Theater in the Brower Center at 7PM in Berkeley, CA.Tickets can be purchased here at Eventbrite for $15 (plus a small handling fee).
Presentation PDF's available online.
After the record-breaking Weather of 2017, the suggested conference theme is "Recovery from extended drought after a wet year – what systems recover?" Forest and aquatic ecosystems have long memories, and variability appears to be increasing. How do we respond as researchers, ecosystem monitors, and managers?
In their new book Why Forests? Why Now? Frances Seymour and Jonah Busch synthesize the latest research on the importance of tropical forests in a way that is accessible to anyone interested in climate change and development and to readers already familiar with the problem of deforestation.
Part of the 2017 FERAL* Lecture Series
The overall conference title is "Building Resilience," designed to reflect a critical fire management objective of our time: changing patterns of wildland fire and other stressors will demand resiliency within our landscapes, communities, and fire management organizations.
In this talk, Dr. Emily Moran will describe past work investigating the dispersal ability and potential for evolutionary responses in trees and other long-lived plants, and her current projects focusing on how inter- and intra-specific responses of Sierra Nevada pines to changes in temperature and aridity may affect forest dynamics and managment best-practices in the future.
This conference is an excellent opportunity to describe your work in Yosemite National Park as well as the greater Sierra Nevada region. In light of the likely La Nina event, the suggested conference theme is "Effects of multiple below-average years."
Description: "The purpose of the workshop was for research scientists, air quality specialists, policy administrators, and others to present and discuss recent advances in research relating to estimation of emission factors for particulate matter (PM) and its constituents (organic carbon, black carbon, etc.) emitted from wildland fires, including wildfires and prescribed burning. The workshop consisted of presentations by attendees and discussions aimed at sharing technical information, evaluating measurement approaches, and suggesting applications to air quality monitoring and policy development."
