Weekly CA fire science seminar series

March 1 @ 3:00 pm - June 21 @ 4:00 pm PST
CA Fire Science Consortium logo

Webinar series registration. This online seminar series will cover the breadth of wildland fire research relevant to California and introduce researchers to new topics and research groups across the state. Topics will include fire weather, wildfire risk, fire ecology, remote sensing, emissions, fire dynamics, fire modeling and public health. Featuring many early-career researchers, this series is aimed at a highly interdisciplinary academic audience but is open to anyone interested in these topics.

Pollinator-friendly plants for restoration

March 10 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am PST
USFS RMRS logo

Webinar registration. Pollinators are essential to the survival and health of natural ecosystems but are declining worldwide. Because of this, there is urgent need to restore pollinators and the services they provide. One way to address this need is to use pollinator-friendly plants in revegetation projects (roadsides, fire rehabilitation, etc.), but land managers lack information about which plants are best for pollinators. RMRS and partners at Montana State University are assessing the pollinator-friendliness of native plant species that are available…

Managing post-fire, climate-induced vegetation transitions

March 11 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PST
Forest crown fire

Webinar registration. Warmer, drier and longer fire seasons in the Northwest have led to larger and more frequent wildfires. These changes in fire activity, combined with warmer and drier post-fire conditions, have in turn led to growing concern that in some areas of the Northwest, particularly in forests and shrublands east of the Cascade Range, existing plant communities may face difficulty regrowing and persisting following fire.

RestorNet: Reveals controls on restoration seeding success across dryland ecosystems

March 18 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am PDT
Society for Ecological Restoration logo

Webinar registration. Description: Dryland ecosystems form the largest global biome and support one third of the global human population but are highly vulnerable to land degradation via disturbance and climate change. Despite widespread demand for dryland restoration and rehabilitation, little information is available to help land managers effectively reestablish native perennial vegetation across drylands. RestoreNet is a restoration field trial network that systematically tests appropriate revegetation techniques across environmental gradients. We tracked seedling density and height following the use of…

Building effective partnerships with indigenous communities

April 1 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am PDT
Conservation Biology Institute logo

Webinar registration. The webinar outlines recommendations for working with Indigenous communities based on the knowledge that long term relationship building with these communities is the foundation upon which educational programs, research collaborations, and other initiatives must be co-created. This presentation seeks to define best practices in approach and process for establishing and maintaining effective collaborations with Indigenous communities that respect sovereignty and self-determination and which have application across many types of efforts. These practices will have a lasting impact on…
