A weekly series of public lectures and panel discussions exploring from multiple angles the "reconciliation" approach to saving and creating habitat for species in a post-wild California. Speakers include ecologists, geologists, fish biologists, engineers, legal scholars, economists, water managers and others.
Reconciliation ecology, in the words of the ecologist Michael Rozenzweig who coined the term, "is the science of inventing, establishing and maintaining new habitats to conserve species diversity in places where people live, work and play."
Peter Moyle and Melanie Truan of the UC Davis Department of Wildlife, Fish and Conservation Biology deliver this second public talk in the winter 2014 seminar series "Reconciling Ecosystem & Economy."
Michael Rosenzweig has inspired, entertained and provoked professional and lay audiences alike with his ideas for saving species in a post-wild world. The University of Arizona ecologist's talk was the first in the UC Davis winter 2014 seminar series "Reconciling Ecosystem & Economy."
