The 2nd California Connectivity Forum: Connecting Ecosystems and Communities
December 1, 2010 | Activities and Recreation Center -- ballrooms A&B, UC Davis Campus
Following up on our successful California Connectivity Forum in 2008, the Road Ecology Center, the Sustainable Transportation Center at UC Davis, and Defenders of Wildlife teamed up to bring you California Connectivity Forum 2010. The focus during the original forum was to bring together scientists and practitioners to discuss wildlife movement and landscape connectivity. We took this one step further in 2010 and incorporated community (human) connection into the discussion of ecosystem connectivity. Wildlife movement and other ecological flows are critical conservation priorities in the face of land and transpiration development. At the same time, people need ways to move and connect for economic, social, and other reasons. Building compatibility between both kinds of connectivity is the next big job for transportation planners, conservationists, land-use planners, and community development. Join us in this new fascinating discussion.
Topics included: Wildlife movement, aquatic, marine, and terrestrial habitat connectivity, multi-modal transportation within communities, regional community connectivity, social and ecological network analysis, integrated analysis and planning for connectivity.
